E-Safety Announcement

How to make a Report?

Most services like, Facebook, Skype, Instagram, twitter, Snapchat, KiK, XBoX 360, XBoX One, tumblr, ask.fm, PlayStation Network and many others have rules about what kind of content is allowed on the site. Often if something is harassing an individual, pornographic or violent it breaks the rules. You can report this kind of content using the reporting tools on the sites.

Is there anywhere else I can report?

You can also report to the police and other bodies that regulate content on the internet:

If you are suspicious about someone’s behaviour towards a child report to CEOP

If you see any criminal content you should report to the Internet Watch Foundation

If you see any content that incites hatred you should report to True Vision

If you want to make a complaint about an advert, television or radio programme, film, newspaper, magazine, video game or other type of content that you think is unsuitable for children to see or hear, you can report it through ParentPort.

If you’d like free advice and tips for staying in control of your mobile phone costs, visit the PhoneBrain website, a campaign aimed at young people run by the premium rate phone services regulator PhonepayPlus.

If you have any concerns regarding E-Safety and would like to raise this issue in confidence please email safe@high-arcal.dudley.sch.uk
