Message from Mr Isherwood: internet safety

header 1

Dear Parents,
We wanted to bring to your attention an Internet issue that has not been a problem at West Kidlington Primary School. We have no intention of trying to scare families but feel that sharing this information is important. This is a statement that was released by The Oxfordshire Safeguarding Board:
WARNING ABOUT THE BLUE WHALE CHALLENGE AFFECTING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
Parents and professionals are advised to be on their guard against a sick social media challenge which encourages youngsters to cut themselves. At its most extreme, the so-called ‘Blue Whale’ challenge encourages teenage suicide.
Police say it is important to keep the scare in perspective. They say they are keen to give children and parents the latest information, rather than spreading panic.
