Tik tok video & online safety

Many of you will have heard that there is a terrible video making the rounds on social media, in particular, on Tik Tok.

Tik Tok is a social media site that allows people to upload any content and share it with others who are using the app.

This video, apparently, shows a suicide attempt. It is unclear whether this video is actually authentic or not, however the content is disturbing.

Tik Tok is an age-restricted app and only students who are 13 years or older should be accessing it.

While this means in theory that no primary school aged children should have this app, we ask that you please check your child’s devices (phones, tablets, ipads etc and including their BYOD device) and internet history to see if they have an account or have accessed any content you are not aware of.

This is also a timely reminder that all apps that have age restrictions on them should not be used. For example, Houseparty and Instagram.

Our school will block access to the Tik Tok app when they are onsite at school in order to protect them.

Please take this opportunity to talk with your children about what they do if they see concerning or confusing information online. Please assure them they will not get in trouble with you if they share confusing information with you. Please remind them that you will support them to stay safe online.
