**PLEASE BE AWARE**of two apps that have been brought to our attention:

The first is called Blue Whale, which encourages children to complete self-harm challenges which ultimately end in suicide. Please keep an eye out for anybody engaging with this app.

Secondly, an app called sayat.me which encourage children to gather feedback- this has been used as an platform for cyber bullying and any use of this app should be closely monitored.

 

At Branston Junior Academy we take your child’s e- safety very seriously. We believe that children should be able to access and enjoy the internet safely.

Each term the importance of e-safety is highlighted and the CEOP annual e safety day is always acknowledged and relevant activities planned for that year's particular theme.

As in the real world, we know that you will wish to keep your children safe in the virtual world.

Whether on a computer at school, a laptop, a tablet, or any other mobile device at home, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.

You may be interested in visting  the ThinkuKnow website we use at school  to play the various games -which re inforce the importance of staying safe online - and to discuss e safety issues with your child.
