Dear Parents,

A safeguarding issue regarding the Tik Tok App has been raised. A disturbing video of a man taking his own life can easily be accessed. Users are advised to quickly swipe across if they see a ‘pop up’ of a bearded man and to refrain from using the APP for a 72-hour period. Can I take this opportunity to remind parents that Tik Tok is for ages 16 and above and not suitable for primary aged children. Please be mindful of this. Further information can be accessed in the link below.

Thank you

Mrs. McDermott
