Net abuse ‘starts in primaries’

The BBC News site published an interesting article recently suggesting that Internet abuse starts in Primary Schools. ‘Older primary school children, as well as secondary pupils in years 10 and 11, are most likely to view unsuitable internet material, a report suggests.’

The article also highlights that many teachers feel they need more support and guidance to prevent children viewing websites which contain racist, terrorist, violent or sexual content.

The report commissioned by the DfES recommends that ‘schools draw up a policy on the safe use of information and communication technology, and appoint a dedicated technology safety co-ordinator.’
