Today we had a visit from PC Graham of Northumbria Police. He visited to discuss current online safety issues and how we can protect ourselves when online. He stressed the importance of ensuring that when we add someone as a friend online, we also know them in real life. He explained the consequences of sharing inappropriate content online, which is particularly relevant as we reach the age of criminal responsibility. He also outlined police concerns about the app Houseparty, which has been involved in a number of recent incidents in the area.
