Year 8 Sharing Images workshop

Northumbria Police’s Prevention Through Education Team will be visiting our school on 11th and 12th October to deliver a session on the risks and consequences associated with the sharing of inappropriate images via text message and social media. Police are seeing an increase in self-generated indecent images from children which has been made worse by lockdowns. The purpose of the presentation is to equip children with the knowledge and skills to protect themselves on the internet from this growing threat, and to make them aware of how these images can be used to exploit young people. The session covers:

* what is an inappropriate image?

* why young people send inappropriate images

* consequences

* the law

* where to find help and support when images have been shared

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch.
