Teachers lack knowledge on internet safety, report reveals

Teachers feel uneducated about protecting children from inappropriate websites and do not know who they should to turn to for advice, new research reveals. Research by telecommunications provider, BT, found that 70% of teachers did not know where to get advice if they suspected a child was being exploited on the internet or had accessed inappropriate material, such as pornography.

The report said the children were increasingly clicking on inappropriate material on the internet that was "adult, sexual, hateful or violent in nature, or encourages activities that are dangerous or illegal". There were 63.4 million unique visitors to adult websites in December last year and the largest group of viewers of internet pornography was children aged 12 to 17.
