Online Safety - Key Stage 5
UK Council for Child Internet Safety - Recently the UK Council for Child Internet Safety produced advice for schools on how to deal with incidents of sexting. In parallel to this advice the National Police Chief's Council (NPCC) have now produced new guidance for police in how to deal with Youth Produced Sexual Imagery.
Section 2 of the UKCCIS guidance identifies some limited scenarios where schools may chose not to inform police. Under these circumstances, where it is clear that the images are on the internet, to avoid the re-victimisation of the victim and distribution of images, schools should liaise with the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) at the following link IWF
Gloucestershire Constabulary will continue to work closely with schools across the County to educate pupils in internet safety. If you would like an officer to visit please contact Darren Peters on 01452 752156
UK Council for Child Internet Safety - Sexting in Schools and Colleges: Responding to incidents and safeguarding young people.
Sextortion is a crime rapidly on the increase.
Also known as ‘webcam blackmail’, it refers to criminals deceiving webcam users into unclothing and performing sexual acts.
This footage is recorded and then used to blackmail victims for money.
It is an international, organised crime, making it difficult for the police to capture the criminals responsible.
