Online Safety

 

We would like to remind all parents about their child’s safe use of social media.

 The Momo Challenge is a new ‘freaky game’ which has caused concern across the UK. Police are worried that the game targets young children on social media. The doll encourages them to add a contact on messaging service WhatsApp, then hounds them with violent images and dares. It encourages them to self-harm and the ultimate post tells them to take their own lives.

 We encourage parents to:

 Ensure they know what their children can access online

  • Ensure children understand the importance of not giving personal information to anyone they do not know
  • Tell their children no-one has the right to make them do anything they do not want to do
  • Use parental controls to keep children safe

A very useful parents top tips guide has been produced by National Online Safety which is below for your information.
