Important Safeguarding Information

The information below was sent to our school this morning, we thought it important that we show this so everybody is informed:

Dear Colleague

Fyi….this has just come from a colleague in Calderdale.  Please circulate as required.

The School Nursing Team have suggested that we share the following information with you:

"Many of you may be aware of the risks and concerns around children playing the online game Fortnite, which has a 12 rating but is played by much younger children.  

We have been made aware of an emerging trend, where people are playing strip Fortnite using webcams. The rule is that when you achieve a “kill” you have to strip off, potentially adding an additional risk from children being exposed to and/or sharing indecent images whilst playing the game.

Please could you share this information with parents, colleagues and schools and remind them that any inappropriate/unlawful contact with children online needs to be reported."
