In the attachments below you will find some leaflets about current popular apps which children and adults may be using. They explain what the app is, what the privacy settings are and whether there have been any safety concerns around the app. New leaflets are released regularly and we will make you aware of them in our school newsletter. Most of these leaflets come from National Online Safety who also provide a parent app which you can download and keep up to date with the most recent information.
