different types of harm and the website provides advice on how to report both illegal and legal but harmful content. To get a better understanding of where you should go to for support, follow the below guide.
Developing a school community approach towards reporting can help build confidence around students navigating the internet with a clear understanding of what to do when they come across something upsetting online. Services such as Report Harmful Content are available to anyone over the age of 13 but just encouraging young people to tell a trusted adult when they encounter harmful online content is an important first step to getting something reported.
If your school wants to encourage reporting within the community, the Report Harmful Content Button can be placed on your school website which will signpost students over 13 towards support. As well, the anonymous communication tool Whisper can help students come forward to report issues and concerns they may be having, in a safe way that also protects their privacy.
Give your school community the confidence to speak up thanks to Whisper Anonymous Reporting. Find out how your staff, students, and parents can benefit here.
The Report Harmful Content helpline is an online platform designed to help you report harmful content, directed at you through social media. Contact us today.
Keep your organisation safe from harmful content online by installing the Report Harmful Content button for your website.
