Cyber Bullying

Post by Gualsa » Mon Nov 21, 2011 8:36 pm

I know anti bullying week was last week. However I am doing a talk for a class of 10/11 year olds this week and I would like some advice or links to good website as this is something I have not done before. I can do stranger/danger, road safety and dealing with emergencies with my eyes closed but I am a bit of a technophobe so usually avoid anything remotely related to technology.

I wont be using a whiteboard of course. Just me and some handouts :slww: So if you have any ideas, important messages or ways to engage this age group, hints tips etc I would be very grateful :slcud:

Hi

Have a look at www.thinkuknow.co.uk

Its part of CEOPS, you can register and download from there. Once registered you can apply for free training, which enables you to deliver lessons to schools and youth groups.

All PCSOs in our area are trained
This job is about people, not headlines

Cyber bullying happens on this very forum by serving or ex-PCs towards PCSOs and it's pathetic.
Power of arrest for PCSOs for 'as and when' - s24a PACE & common law (i.e. BoP) using s3 CLA 1967

I'm a PCSO, I will WATCH you get your head kicked in (as per force policy)

Good advice.

Please don't attempt to deliver a presentation on this important subject without specialist training and support.

Contact your Council's e-safety Officer who can arrange for training and support and may already have plans to visit your schools to give presentations. Perhaps you can accompany him/her.

The bullying video on the CEOP website isn't suitable for 10 year olds, trust me.

I do a LOT of cyber bullying and e-safety lessons as part of my role as a schools officer, it'll be very difficult with kids so young. Don't you have a dedicated schools officer who can do this?

Thanks for all your support and advice. Yes, I have had my CEOPS training and am I think they call it ambassador? However, I have never actually done a presentation and this is just regarding bullying, not so much keeping safe on the net overall. I have some print outs from our training department and its only a 20mins chat with a class of 28 so nothing huge.

BB- do you fancy popping up to do this with me on Thursday? :slww: We are so short staffed I wont find anyone to go with me. I am used to doing everything on my own..

Gualsa, maybe network with these two who work for Derbyshire Police http://www.derbyshire.police.uk/My-Loca ... -team.aspx

Anti-bullying internet advice in Heanor

Police Community Support Officers visited a Heanor school to warn of the dangers of cyber-bullying.

PCSOs Emma Baker and Becky Davis visited Howitt Primary School and spoke to pupils in years five and six on using the internet safely. PCSO Baker said: “We explained how messages that are placed on social networking sites can sometimes be read the wrong way by the recipient and hurt someone’s feelings.”
