Important information for parents and carers

 

E-Safety

You may have heard about the Momo Challenge which targets children via What’s App and indirectly via social media and YouTube. Children are enticed to contact a user named Momo then they are instructed to perform a series of dangerous tasks which encourage self-harm and suicide. Messages are usually accompanied by frightening or gory pictures. If the tasks are not completed, graphic threats are then sent.

You can find out more about the Momo Challenge by using this link:
