Dear Parent / Carer,
You may have seen or heard on the news an item about the dangers of Live Streaming for young people. Indeed, police have warned that Live Streaming is an ‘urgent threat’ to the exploitation of children.
As a parent myself, I know it can be difficult to keep up to date with the ever-changing nature of the ‘digital world’ our children are growing up in and the inherent dangers that are present. For this reason, I urge you to read the booklet attached to this letter as it gives excellent, practical advice to help safeguard our children when they are online. Please also note the minimum age limit guidelines for the various apps or websites. I have uploaded the booklet to our school website - http://www.staugustinesmiddlesbrough.co.uk/safeguarding/ - so please feel free to direct other parents to the information if they have not seen it before.
Mr M. Macaulay
