So that makes it acceptable? OK then lets not do anything about it and the next time a child is pushed over the edge we can stand at the crem and say “Bullying happens at every secondary school”.

Has anyone really found a way to control social media?
No and doubly not so when it comes to kids.July 23, 2018 at 6:29 pm #153309
If this is bullying on social media then this is not just a school matter, it’s also for the parents to keep an eye on what their kids are up to. In fact, the school could solve this at a stroke by banning the use of phones and other devices at school – no longer happening at school then.July 23, 2018 at 7:20 pm #153311
Yes Liz I was a long term governor at Darland till last year but a BIG NO to any denial of having a bullying problem Cyber or otherwise. Indeed in
my humble opinion any school, or other body who deals with young people, that denies such issues are a possibility are hiding their heads in the sand.
As Nen and others have said parents and guardians have a role as indeed do the social media outlets such as Facebook, Snacht and probably many others an old codger like me aren’t aware of!July 23, 2018 at 8:05 pm #153315
Information on this website run by NSPCC https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/child-abuse-and-neglect/bullying-and-cyberbullying/ for parents, guardian, children & Young People and professionals.
Infomation on the site guides parents to look for telltale signs to look out for if your child is being bullied or could, in fact, be the bullier. The later is something no parent would like to think their child could be a perpetrator. Whatever your position look and learn?July 24, 2018 at 11:13 am #153348
There’s a recent episode of Dispatches on Channel 4 (still available online) which reveals how Facebook tolerates and turns a blind eye to all types of unacceptable content, including videos of kids being beaten and being violent to others. I think schools, councils, public bodies and businesses should take the lead and stop using such platforms – suspend their accounts and stop all advertising spending – until they get their act together.July 24, 2018 at 11:25 am #153351

Facebook is an absolute sewer. The company doesn’t understand or care what is accepted or tolerated in British law – it’s very rare that anything reported ever gets dealt with. All they care about is getting eyeballs on the site to earn their advertising dollars. If they had their way there would be relevant ads with baseball bats and knuckledusters next to children fighting videos.
I’ve seen the dregs of society on there boasting about how they are going to get away with the crime they’re currently in court for – insulting and making threats against the judge. Then all their 2 brain cell mates cheering them on. You try reporting all this to Facebook and ask them to refer it to the police and they say it doesn’t breach their community standards.
If there’s something you don’t like on there – You actually have to go over their heads and just screenshot and refer it to the relevant authorities yourself – e.g. police, social services etc… as you can imagine Facebook’s abject failure to keep its content and house in order wastes thousands of hours of time for these agencies when they could be dealing with things in the real world.
