It urges teachers to warn pupils that `sexting' could be a crime
Teachers should caution students that engaging in "sexting" and revenge porn could result in a criminal conviction, according to new guidance.
While making their pupils aware that such behaviour is not a "normal part of relationships", teachers should also deliver "reassurance messages" for teenagers who have already engaged in these activities, according to the document compiled by the Home Office's crime prevention panel and the NSPCC children's charity (see www.tesconnect.comNSPCCguide).
