Teachers who are abused online by their own pupils "feel very personally hurt" by the vitriol directed at them on the internet, a headmaster of an east London school told Daybreak.
Ges Smith, the headmaster of a school in Walthamstow, said there were "two elements" to the effects of online abuse.
"One, it can be professionally and credibly damaging. And two, I have seen people who have been abused by young people online and they actually feel very personally hurt by it."
