Interview with the attendance officer
“Sexting” is an increasingly common activity among children and young people, where they share inappropriate or explicit images on-line or through mobile phones. It can also refer to written messages. “Sexting” is the exchange of self-generated sexually explicit images, through mobile picture messages or webcams over the internet. It is also called cybersex or sending a nude selfie or picture.
There were over 1,200 Childline counselling sessions that mentioned “sexting” in 2014/15 (NSPCC 2015). Most young people do not see “sexting” as a problem and are reluctant to talk to adults about it because they are afraid of being judged or having their phones taken away.
When images are stored or shared on line they become public. They can be deleted on social media or may only last a few seconds on apps like Snapchat, but images can still be saved or copied by others. These images may never be completely removed and could be found in the future, for example when applying for jobs or university. “Sexting” is illegal. By sending an explicit image, a young person is producing and distributing child abuse images and risks being prosecuted, even if the picture is taken and shared with their permission. If you have any concerns regarding E-Safety and would like to raise this issue in confidence please email firstname.lastname@example.org
