Important information- Social Media

Dear all

I would like to make you aware of this article on Nottinghamshire Police’s website which is as a result of a notification by one of our Primary Head-teacher colleagues.

Please be mindful that this particular App is not the only one where there have been safeguarding concerns; perpetrators do utilise any platform where they can access children.  Scroll down for a list of Apps which can be used as a platform to access children; the list is not exhaustive and please be aware that new Apps are constantly developed which children and then potential perpetrators access.  It is also worth noting that the minimum age is not necessarily a bar to children if they enter their incorrect age.
