What parents can do My advice to parents is to talk with their children and make sure they understand the potential consequences of sending a nude picture. Each sexting incident is different and it is important that schools deal with them appropriately on a case by case basis. This might mean sharing information with equivalent staff at another school, should one of the young people attend a different setting. This is something that the police have become acutely aware of over the last few years as increasing numbers of incidents have been bought to our attention. Parents will usually be contacted and all of the involved parties will be required to remove the image from their devices. We will always aim to avoid unnecessarily criminalising a young person in our decision making.

However, for more serious incidents for example, deliberately sharing an image to abuse, using the image to coerce or exploit the victim prosecution may still take place.

School pastoral or safeguarding staff will usually meet with all of the parties who are involved in the sexting. The latter is the least likely, as most sexual images are shared via SnapChat which limits the time of visibility. What steps can I take if my child has sent a nude?
