Teachers Cyber BullyingNew research from Ecclesiastical Insurance has revealed that 29% of teachers have been contacted by parents on social media platforms and of these nearly a third felt that social media was being used to intimidate the teacher.

Somewhat disturbingly the research also uncovered that 41% of teachers said that their organisation did not have a social media policy.

This is very surprising and there is a very little excuse for this. The South West grid for Learning (SWGfL) publishes a series of School Online Safety Policy Templates that have been recognised as good practice by both education all establishments and local authorities across the UK.
