Important Message Regarding Disturbing Video on Social Media

09 Sept 2020

We have been made aware today of a highly disturbing video involving suicide which has been recorded and distributed via the major social media platforms such as TikTok, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The video is horrific and is being hidden behind other content such as pictures of puppies and kittens to lure the younger viewers.

The advice given to us suggests parents do not ask their children if they have viewed this video as this is likely to trigger their curiosity. We strongly recommend that your children do not access any social media for the next 24-48 hours to give time for this content to be removed.

If you have any concerns for your child/children or if you need further support or advice please contact your Assistant Head of School in the first instance.
