Pupils as young as 11 have taken pictures up the skirts of teachers, a union has said.
The teaching union NASUWT says an increasing number of female teachers and girls have been the victim of upskirting.
General secretary Chris Keates, speaking at the union’s annual conference in Belfast, said reports of the “deplorable act” were often not taken seriously by schools.
In February a teenager was found guilty of making videos of two teachers at a school in Northern Ireland who were both supported by the union.
Schoolchildren as young as seven were among the growing number of upskirting victims last year, police figures released earlier this year have shown.
Ms Keates said: “When sexual harassment issues are raised, be it upskirting or others, people are saying ‘Are you sure you didn’t do something to provoke it?’ or ‘Was it just a bit of banter?’
