SHARP - Schools Help Advice and Reporting System

Hello, welcome to the School Help Advice Reporting Page System. We all work together at Mark Rutherford School to help with any problems you may have in or out of school.

The online world is integral to how children stay in touch with their friends, and access to the internet is now available like never before. However, there are inherent risks associated with new technologies and it is essential for young people and their parents/ carers to understand how to reduce these risks.

Need immediate help?

Do you need immediate help or have a real emergency? If so call 999 or contact Bedfordhsire Police.


The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is the UK's national child protection agency visit for more information. CEOP believe the start of the new school year is the perfect time to speak to your child about how they use the internet and how they can stay safe online.

Through the CEOP advice and help centre, members of the public can access guidance on a broad range of topics to help protect their children, or alternatively report a concern directly to CEOP.

When should I report to CEOP?

CEOP children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP below.
