Keeping Young People Safe (CEOP)

Safeguarding is at the core of all the provision we deliver to our students and community.

The Internet is a fantastic tool which provides access to a wealth of information, services and resources. There are of course dangers too. At Skipton Girls’ High School we are extremely positive about the advantages the Internet can provide and we believe that students should be given the opportunity to use it responsibly. We do everything we can in school to keep our students safe online.
