NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers) has become the first teaching association to sign up to the No More Page 3 campaign.
The association voted to support the campaign at a recent meeting. Both Russell Hobby, NAHT general secretary, and Bernadette Hunter, NAHT president, have signed the petition.
Mr Hobby said: “NAHT is delighted to add their support to this important issue. School leaders understand the importance of protecting children and young people from inappropriate adult material, whether online, on television or within the pages of the popular press. Our members have told us about the problems the easy availability of pictures like these cause, as children, especially very young children, can find such images confusing and embarrassing.
“Most adults recognise the importance of the watershed and online parental controls for computers and game consoles – most also appreciate the need to restrict the publication of pictures like those seen on Page Three to adult-only publications.”
