CHILDREN AND SOCIAL MEDIA – POLICE ADVICE

DATE POSTED: WEDNESDAY 3 MAY 2017

The Police have made schools aware of dangerous games on Social Media which originate in Russia but are now being played by young people in the UK. In order to protect our children we want to share this information with parents and carers so that you can talk to your children and make sure you keep an eye on their internet activity on phones, PCs and tablets.

One such game is called the ‘Blue Whale Game’. Players are given a master who controls them for 50 days and each day they are given a new task to complete. Many of these tasks are dangerous. On the 50th day the masters behind the game instruct the young people to commit suicide and sadly across the world some have actually done this.

Please speak to your children and remind them to tell you about any games or messages on Social Media that they are concerned about. Most children are happy to talk to adults as they can become very worried for themselves and others.

Best practice and the best advice is that it is always a good idea to ask your children to share their internet activity with you. Many of them feel much more comfortable if they know parents are continuing to make sure that they remain safe.

If you see or hear anything that worries you about your child’s online activity, please feel free to contact your child’s Progress Leader at the school.
