MOMO challenge - Parent guidance
The School has been advised via Kirklees Safeguarding Team and by the UK Safer Internet Centre, that we should not draw attention to this phenomenon in school as this could lead children and young people to look for it and cause unnecessary anxiety. Any concerns raised by children will be dealt with on an individual basis. Although it is now believed to be an elaborate hoax there are various websites offering parental advise.

Internet Safety Day
5th February 2019
Each year we celebrate Internet Safety Day. We have a special assembly and activities within the classroom. This year we talked about giving and asking for consent.
SAFE - Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.
MEET - Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Remember online friends are still strangers.
ACCEPT - Accepting emails, messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
RELIABLE - Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or with someone who knows.
TELL - Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried.
