Warning about TikTok
This morning we have been alerted to a video that is circulating on social media platforms, in particular, TikTok. The video contains very concerning content. We are aware that some of our students use TikTok outside of school hours. Students, while they are at school do not access TikTok, however, we have no control when they are walking to and from school or are in their homes.
Today's situation is a timely reminder that parents must remain vigilant of their child's social media use. We are often told by students that they play games such as Fortnight or use social apps such as Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok. All of these games and services have age restrictions that should mean that they do not use them. If your child is using these services we strongly advise you have a conversation with your child to reset the expectations.
Attached is a parents guide to TikTok. The link to the National Online Safety website where all of the parental guides for social apps and games can be found HERE.
Thank you for your support in keeping our community safe.
