Staying Safe Online

The sharing of inappropriate images on Social Media is a practice that some young people are becoming involved in.  This is done on a number of different forums including Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat to name a few, It normally takes place between young people in a relationship but there has been incidents where images have been sent to complete strangers.  

There are many dangers associated with this behavior including it leading to bullying or harassment, lack of control of the images, images becoming public, the effect this might have on the person’s digital footprint and the Legal implications of taking, sharing, receiving or posting inappropriate images of anyone under the age of 18.
   
The young people at our school receive advice regarding this topic and there are dedicated sessions during the PSE program offering advice and guidance from CEOP, the Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre, who produce very good educational packages, these inputs are jointly presented by the Campus Police Officers from Police Scotland and the PSE teaching staff.

We would like to offer some advice to parents and carers on how to deal with some of these issues and we have attached advice on such issues as how to set the privacy settings on Facebook, blocking a post or profile and how to report an issue directly to the site such as Youtube.  To view/download the settings advice, please click here

We would like to direct you to the CEOP website where you will find a section for parents or carers to visit for advice and guidance on how best to keep their child safe online. You can find this by visiting www.thinkuknow.co.uk and following the link to the parent/carer section.
