Omegle Warning

We have had reports of children accessing a site / app called Omegle and wanted to raise your awareness of the site and some of its possible uses, the site Internet Matters provides a useful guide which explains this in details, however a key paragraph for parents is the below from the second page of the guide: -

Should I be concerned about Omegle as a parent/carer?

The tag line for Omegle is “Talk to strangers”. Chatting to different people online can be fun, but as Omegle acknowledges, there is a strong risk of users encountering sexual content on Omegle. This is not limited to viewing adult sexual content but could also be young people performing sexual acts or exposing themselves.

 

Please see the full guide below as well as a guide on how to setup you devices safely.

Year 6 DARE Graduation (added 17/03/2020)

Our year 6 children graduated from the DARE 25 programme yesterday. Their graduation ceremony in the afternoon was a chance for them to proudly share all that they had learnt with their parents, family members and teachers. As well as performing the DARE song, they shared artwork and poems that they had created themselves, played the piano and even performed British Sign Language actions to 'Footprints in the Sand'. The overall message was about how to support each other, avoid peer pressure and communicate effectively and their teachers were very proud of them. Well done Year 6!

F1 & F2 Police Visit (09/03/2020)

Today, F1 and F2 had a visit from the police. The children enjoyed learning all about what the police do, what equipment they use and had a sit in their vehicle.
