What’s the situation in Suffolk? Out of 1265 respondents to the 2012 survey, the encouraging message was that 79% of respondents had been taught e-safety in school and 59% had been taught e-safety by their parents. 19% (240) of respondents claimed to have been cyber bullied and 71% of those reported being upset to some extent. There was also a clear difference between how males and females felt about being cyber bullied; 82% of girls reported being upset, compared to only 57% of boys.
It’s about safeguarding By creating e-safer communities we aim to enable children, young people and vulnerable adults to understand the risks. But they must also be empowered to report concerns about what they encounter online. You, as the workforce (and equally as parents/carers) have a key role in providing safeguarding support for children, young people and vulnerable adults. Creating an e-safer Suffolk will be an ongoing challenge.
