Reporting Harmful Content
The website Report Harmful Content shows how to report threats, harassment and bullying, self-harm and suicide content, online abuse, violent content, unwanted sexual advances and pornographic content for a wide variety of Apps. The links take users to the App’s own reporting system but if anything harmful has not been taken down after 48 hours of reporting then a report can be submitted to the Report Harmful Content website using screenshots.
Please speak to one of the school leaders if you have any questions about any aspect of E-Safety.
