Protective Measures
"A Parents Guide"
So why now?
50% of 14 year olds have experienced some form of bullying.
November to December is when schools receive most bullying reports.
Cyber-bullying is the fastest growing type.
What is Cyber-bullying?
Sending mean, vulgar or threatening messages or images.
Posting sensitive, private info and/or lies about another person.
Pretending to be someone else to make that person look bad.
Intentionally excluding someone from an online group.
What we
can do...
Bullying is serious, report it!
Save and Print.
Contact school, or if serious enough the Police.
Word of warning
The police have and do act,
You are not anonymous online!
Data protection act
A caution stays with you for at least 5 years.
Support From Downlands
Encourage pupils to make a positive choice, tell staff or a Peer Mentor.
This is a safe school, bullying is rare, it takes hard work to keep it this way.
Tutors develop supportive relationships with tutees.
The Good & The Bad News
The Good...

Young people are likely to know the identity of a cyber bully.
Simple steps can minimise your child's exposure to intimidation or bullying online.
The Bad...
Young people do not appreciate the lengths some predators will go to.
Young people can overestimate their personal safety using a computer at home.
Identities can be false, proof can be hard to find.
Children will push the boundaries.

A big part of young peoples lives
Education & dialogue key

Talk to your child - discuss expectations & fears, agree ground rules, agree how they will be monitored.
Agree where possible but remember you are in charge.
Manage physical and technical access to internet and web communities (internet router & computer/console settings.
Manage your identity - Digital Footprint
Monitor rating of games and game access.
Self regulation based on trust alone is not advisable. Be responsible and clear.
Facebook is not for under 13's.
Peer group pressure (have you got 300 friends?) is best dealt with at root - remove access (physical and or technical).
The rules of friendship work differently online, be aware and responsive to this.
Social network settings can work for and against you - always assume that the agreement you strike with your child is an evolving one.
