Project deSHAME: resources for teachers and parents to tackle peer-based online sexual harassment

Project deSHAME, coordinated by Childnet and co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the EU and Facebook, aims to tackle peer-based online sexual harassment by empowering local communities to work together to increase reporting among young people.

Childnet has developed a range of resources for parents and carers as well as educators to be able to engage in meaningful conversations with children and young people on the subject of online sexual harassment. These resources can be tailored to teenagers or children between nine and 12 years old and aim to engage everybody on how they can reduce and prevent online sexual harassment. 

Free resources include:

  • an advice leaflet for parents and carers of nine- to 12-year-olds
  • film highlighting the issues that children can face when they want to tell adults about their experiences
  • lesson toolkit for educators containing a teaching guide, lesson plans, quick activities and quizzes.

Feedback from schools that trialled the lesson toolkit has been overwhelmingly positive, detailed in Childnet's impact report. Young people said that they had found the lessons interesting and had learned something as a result, as well as reporting that the lessons had made them consider the impact of their own online behaviour towards others.

The Life Members' Sector Council (LMSC)

Whether leaving a labour of love or embracing a life of leisure, there can be no doubt that retirement from school leadership marks a huge change in lifestyle. There will be adjustments to make, new challenges to take and a range of new opportunities. At a time like this, it is important that our experienced members do not lose all the support they received in their working life. Our life members’ committee is here to ensure members are supported in retirement.

This committee feeds its extensive wealth of experience and know-how to support the work of NAHT. It also gives our life members the chance to make important contributions to our campaigns for working members.  

The committee, which meets four times a year, is made up of one elected representative from each of our regions, with the addition of one place each for Northern Ireland and Wales. And these elected committee members, normally, serve a three-year term.

Areas of focus for the committee include the following: 

  • Current legislation issues eg pension provision
  • Action against discrimination, including age discrimination.
