School is aware of the Momo challenge that has been appearing on some popular apps such as What’s app, Facebook YouTube and YouTubeKids. We understand that this has caused upset, distress and panic with some children and their families.
Parental guidance can be found on http://nationalonlinesafety.com/resources/platform-guides/momo-online-safety-guide-for-parents or call in to the office to ask for a leaflet (see below).
Please be vigilant when your child is going online to avoid further upset and distress.
If your child does ask questions please reiterate to your child that it is unreal and only a story.
Please ensure your child is not actively searching for content online or discussing and scaring other children.
