WHAT IS LOCKERS?

Lockers is a new information and education resource. It assists schools in coping with and preventing the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors. Intended for use with Junior Cycle SPHE classes, Lockers is supported by a newly developed animation and six lesson plans. Also included in Lockers is an information section for school leaders. This 25-page section informs principals on the context for sexting among young people, the laws that can come into effect when underage sexting occurs and the implications for school policy.

WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

To mark the launch of Safer Internet Day 2016, We hosted a symposium on ‘Sexting and the Consequences for Schools’. The aim of this event was to support schools dealing with the complex issues around explicit self-generated images of minors. Experts from the legal profession, law enforcement, curriculum and policy all shared their knowledge on this important topic.
