Music-ly/ticktock/and game sites – links sent by stranger

We have received reports that those using Music-ly/ticktock/and game sites are being sent links by strangers which.lead them to sites about child suicide.

Parents/carers can get guidance from the O2 helpline about security settings, they will be able to help parents/carers prevent the links/pop ups being sent. The help line is a free service for any parents/carers (not just O2 customers) and they will give expert advice on keeping children safe online and provide step by step guides to setting up the technology to support this.

If you have any concerns, please contact the school and speak to Diane Keary or Stella McGovern.
