Keeping children safe

If you have any concerns about the safety of a student at the school, please do not hesitate to contact us on the main school number or via e-mail on admin@thomasbennett-tkat.org.

Alternatively, go to the CEOP website where you will be able to make a report.

Who are CEOP?

The National Crime Agency's CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account.  We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA lead operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.
