SENSITIVE CONTENT - Safeguarding Information for Parents - The Game
Staffordshire’s Education Safeguarding Advice Service has asked the Academy if we can raise the following with parents.
There is “A game” being circulated via Facebook to children which contains several different actions for them to complete, including the encouragement of self-harm and hurting others. Whilst many of our children will, I am sure, be confident in ignoring these messages, I am also conscious that around the country there have been several incidents where dares via social media have led to a child’s death. Therefore it is important that this concern is raised with parents to make them aware of this potential risk.
Please see below a screenshot of how the message has been appearing on facebook.
