Safety online

An online Concern
The Momo challenge is a sinister 'challenge' that has been around for some time. It has recently resurfaced and once again has come to the attention of our school as an area of concern. It has been dubbed the 'suicide killer game' and has been heavily linked with apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, and most recently YouTube Kids. The school stongly advises that you are vigilant of what your child is accessing and are aware of what to do should your child access this challenge. Although we at Monkshouse pride ourselves on our staff and pupils' knowledge of E-Safety, we also acknowledge that it can be difficult to totally control what children access online. If you become aware that your child has seen the challenge, we would advise you to discuss it with them and reassure them that this is not only fake, but also how to deal with finding these videos in the future through the report and block features available on many online platforms. The National Online Safety group (NOS) has produced this parent guide to help deal with this.
