    Internet Safety Concern - Momo Challenge

    Dear Parents/Carers Please can we draw your attention to the attached document.It gives details of how to protect children from an online danger that we have been made aware of today. The Momo challenge appears to pop up on things like What's App and YouTube kids. It comes up in the middle of what children are doing so may be missed by an adult. It is a face that hatches from an egg. It appears to develop in to a game of hide and seek but quickly moves on to giving instructions that will put your children at risk. The face goes on to threaten the children and tell them not to share with family members or bad things will happen. You will be able to find out more using an internet search. The class teachers will speak to children again about e safety and reiterate how they stay safe online and what to do if they come across something that worries them. We will not refer directly to this challenge. Lorna Richardson Headteacher

March 2019


Our busy term continues.

Year 4 had a very successful annual 'Pilgrimage' to Wells Cathedral and are very busy rehearsing for our end of term production.

Book Week was a great success with so many varied activities and opportunities for all. Thank you to the parents, carers and grandparents who came to share books with their children.

Please make sure you keep up to date with all that will be happening on the School App.


 Kind Regards
