Online Safety - Key Stage 3&4
Guidance, Resources and Articles
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.
