Safeguarding Update for Parents

We would like to raise your awareness for safeguarding purposes. Please be aware of the safety of the new features in the Snapchat app used by many of our students. Last week the company introduced a new feature known as ‘Snap Map’. This allows users to see the precise location of their Snapchat contacts. As you can appreciate, sharing your location is a risky thing to do.

As a school we consider it to be part of our safeguarding duty to help students protect their online privacy and seek to advise you of this latest update in order to help your child remain safe when using social media.

We are grateful of your support in this matter and ask that you contact the school if you have any concerns regarding this or other safeguarding issues.
