CEOP stands for Child Exploitation and Online Protection. One of the initiatives run by CEOP is one called Thinkuknow. It provides information and guidance to parents on the subject of child access to online activities. The guidance is split into two age groups – Primary and Secondary school ages and shows what risks a child might face in being online, what tools can be provided to protect and child and what parental controls a parent can put into place to be more assured of protection of their child. It also provides a Parents’ and Carers’ Guide to the Internet for those who aren’t as to au fait with the internet as our youngsters seem to be.
