Safeguarding: “A Game” – Warning to Parents

It has come to our attention that 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, we are conscious that around the country there have been several incidents where dares via social media have led to child fatalities.
