What apps are appropriate for my child?
The NSPCC normally come in to school once a year to remind the children of the knowledge they need to stay safe from harm and how they can speak out if they are worried. This would be a good use of 20 minutes on a Friday morning!
Tik Tok has been mentioned in school again recently so we thought that you might like to have some more information about it if you were not familiar with it. Tik Tok is very popular but unfortunately can sometimes cause very negative behaviour, which in turn causes children to become worried. Trends can often spread very quickly via the Tik Tok app and we have had cases where children come into school worried that the latest negative trend is going to happen to them.
We take this very seriously at school and reassure the children that school is a safe environment.
New trends happen so fast that staff may not be aware of them so please help us to be vigilant and let school know if you have any concerns about a clip that your child has watched and been upset by.

Balancing the various demands parents have to cope with isn't easy and all parents can come under pressure or stress from time to time.

Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online. And the good news is parental controls are really easy to set up.
Innocent searches sometimes reveal not so innocent results. So if you’re worried about what your child is searching for online, who they’re talking to or what they’re seeing, we can help.
