Safety concerns over use of chatrooms.
It has been brought to the school’s attention that there is a dangerous trend of some young people using anonymous text and video chatrooms. Websites such as Omegle and Ome.TV require no logging in or sign up and give instant access to complete strangers. This is highly risky and leaves users vulnerable to exploitation, sexism, racism and pornography.
It is understandable that children will be online more during the lockdown, but we ask that all parents are vigilant in what they are accessing. For advice on how to check your child’s online habits, privacy settings or use filters please visit:
