The Local Authority has received a number of notifications about children of primary school age in particular accessing a number of apps on social media devices at home which appear to be games but are actually live online chatrooms. Through these apps children can be encouraged to share personal details and there is the danger of exposure to inappropriate content. The apps include Monkey, Moviestar Planet and Roblox. We do considerable work at Sir John Cass Red Coat to discuss online safety with our students and would like to encourage parents to monitor what children are accessing and to ensure appropriate filters in place on social media devices to bar access to inappropriate sites.
