Thornhill Park School

Thornhill Park School is an independent specialist school based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear for pupils aged 4-19

Our mission is to work together inspiring, supporting, celebrating and equipping autistic and neurodiverse children, young people and adults.

Pupils at Thornhill Park School's Emsworth site received a visit from two police officers who presented a talk regarding online safety and sharing images.

Pupils were informed of what is and isn't legal in relation to age appropriateness, and the dangers of social media when it isn't used safely.

Pupils were shown a video on the influence peer pressure and texting can have on pressuring someone into sending an image, the impact this can have on everyone involved, and the consequences of their actions. 

Pupils were very engaged, asked questions, and shared their knowledge about staying safe online.
