Ofsted reports on seeming normalisation of sexting

Ofsted are reporting on the extremely concerning normalisation of sexting and sexual harassment in schools. The survey found that 90% of girls experienced sexist name-calling or were sent explicit photos or videos. It also found that some girls were contacted by multiple boys each night requesting nudes.

It indicates that advice schools have traditionally given (block people you don’t want to receive messages from) is not working as children are just creating multiple accounts.

Most concerning, the report indicates that such issues are becoming normalised as children are beginning to accept such incidents are just part of online experiences for young people, and that there is no point in reporting such abuse.
