Important information regarding TikTok
It has come to our attention via the BBC News that there is some extremely disturbing and upsetting footage currently being streamed on social media outlets that children may have downloaded to their mobile devices. Whilst we are mindful of bringing attention to it, we know that many pupils use social media channels such as TikTok and there maybe no warning to the video appearing on a feed. We just wanted to let parents and carers know so that appropriate precautions could be put in place. Advice such as not viewing TikTok videos or deleting the App for 72 hours has been suggested while the App creators ensure the video is deleted and removed.
We would also remind parents that it is extremely important they are aware of all the Apps their children are using on mobile devices as all Apps are vulnerable to misuse by adults and can be used in this way.
