A recent social media challenge targeting children and young adults called the “Momo Challenge,” has created concern throughout the country due to its disturbing nature. The purpose of this post is to make you aware of this challenge, provide you with information about it, and urge you to monitor your children’s use of social media and the Internet.

The “Momo Challenge,” a game found on Facebook and the app WhatsApp, features a frightening avatar who asks its viewers to perform various tasks and provide photos as proof. The “Momo” threatens those who do not perform the tasks.

We would encourage parents to sit down with their children and talk about all aspects of their online world and explain the potential dangers. Information and Tips for parents can be found in the image below.

In addition students are being made aware of the facts relating to this in special assemblies inside school and if concerned can speak to members of our safeguarding team. If parents have any concerns about their youngster please contact our safeguarding team.
