27.02.19 – ESafety warning MoMo
We have become increasingly aware of highly inappropriate videos circulating online that are being viewed by children across schools. These video clips are appearing on many social media sites and You Tube (including Kids You tube). One of the videos starts innocently, like the start of a Peppa Pig episode for example, but quickly turn into an altered version with violence and offensive language,
Another video clip is going by the name of ‘MoMo’ which shows a warped white mask which is promoting children to do dangerous tasks without telling their parents. Examples that have been brought to our attention from schools include: asking children to turn the gas on or to find and take tablets.
As you can imagine, this is highly distressing for the children to view. We encourage you to be vigilant when your child is using any device or watching any clips. We would also encourage all parents/carers to remind their children of online safety rules:
KS1- if it upsets you switch off the screen and tell an adult.
KS2: Save it, block it, report it.
If you have any concerns, please speak to your child’s class teacher, or report it to the police.
