Guidance on ‘sexting’
Sexting guidance is in the early stages of being developed by the police in England and Wales.
This will be sent to schools and police in England and Wales by the National Police Chief Council (NPCC) to assist in deciding how to address the issue and when cases of sexting should be reported.
Parents Protect has published their own guidance; Barlow Robbins has published a short note on the issue of sexting; the South West Grid for Learning has published an infographic; and the NSPCC has published information on keeping children safe on social networks, apps and games.
