Bewdley Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment.
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command, or CEOP Command, is a command of the UK's National Crime Agency, and is tasked to work both nationally and internationally to bring online child sex offenders, including those involved in the production, distribution and viewing of child abuse material, to the UK courts.
If you have been a victim of online abuse or you're worried about somebody else, you can contact the CEOP securely at https://ceop.police.uk/
The website provides a range of information and links about keeping yourself or a child you know safe from child sexual exploitation.
Child Sexual Exploitation
Pace helps parents across the UK understand what is happening to their child and how parents are the prime agents in helping their child exit exploitative relationships. It does this by offering:
- One-to-one telephone advice and support to parents
- Facilitating meetings with similarly-affected parents for peer support
- Advising how to establish rights as parents and work in partnership with statutory agents such as police and social workers
- Advice and support when pursuing disruption and prosecution of the perpetrators of child sexual exploitation
- Befriending scheme

Talking to Childline can be the first step that gets a child's life back on track. Young people can get help and support with any issue they're going through, no matter how big or small.
