Keeping Children Safe Online
We would like to make you aware of this article on Nottinghamshire Police’s website. Please click on the link below to go to their website:-
Police are urging parents to make sure they know who their children are talking to online after primary school pupils were targeted. The youngsters, aged between nine and 11 were using the ooVoo app – a multiple user chat service – on which a man befriended them and posted sexual images. One of the children told a teacher what had happened and it was reported to the police. We are asking parents to get involved in what children are doing online. Keep your kids safe!
Please be mindful that this particular App is not the only one where there have been safeguarding concerns; perpetrators do utilise any platform where they can access children. For a full list of Apps which can be used as a platform to access children please visit the Nottinghamshire Police website; the list is not exhaustive and please be aware that new Apps are constantly developed which children and then potential perpetrators access. It is also worth noting that the minimum age is not necessarily a bar to children if they enter their incorrect age.
