Academy safeguarding update for all parents:- NCA issues urgent warning about ‘sextortion’

Following a big increase in the number of teenagers, particularly boys, who have been tricked into sharing naked images online the National Crime Agency has put out a UK wide alert.

Sextortion involves deliberately lying to and grooming a child, in order to get them to share an intimate image.

The perpetrator will then use the image to try and blackmail the victim. Children are particularly vulnerable and there has been an increase in the number of reported incidents across the globe.

Below are links to the original article by the NCA and todays BBC news report. Both contain advice on how you can protect and support your child.
