We have received news of two separate safeguarding concerns regarding social media that are present in the wider community.
The first concern involves a private Facebook group operating in South Wales called Small Butterfly. This group discusses sensitive issues with users such as suicide and offers information and ways to ‘prepare for the special day’ that are very worrying.
The second concern involves TikTok, and the rumours that 24th April is a national sexual assault day. You may have seen coverage of this in the news.
Both Facebook and TikTok are age restricted and no primary aged pupils should be using them.
Please talk to your children about what they are looking at online and ensure that they are safe and keep away these and other dangerous situations online.
