E-Safety Alert

6th February 2019

There is a current trend on Instagram whereby pupils are encouraged to write unpleasant, nasty comments about each other. The comments are anonymous and therefore some pupils are unfortunately engaging in writing some concerningly harsh insults online.

The most worrying aspect of this behaviour is that the app itself is designed to be 'hidden' so it may appear that your child does not have the platform on their phone.

As always- we will continue to raise awareness of this type of behaviour and educate our pupils regarding the consequences of engaging in such actions.

We ask that you be vigiliant about the nature of activity chosen by some of our young people and that you support us by holding relevant conversations regarding this type of Cyberbullying.
