Good afternoon,

We've recently become aware that come children in Year 5 and 6 have been using WhatsApp and group chats to communicate, with some comments causing distress among the children.

This week, we will address all classes in e-safety lessons, including discussions about age restrictions on certain apps like WhatsApp, which now requires users to be at least 16 years old.

For additional information on WhatsApp and staying safe on group chats, please visit our school website via the following link:

Thank you,

Mrs. Elliott & Mrs. Hall (IT & e-safety Lead)
