Please be aware of an app, popular with some young people, of which we have been aware this week. The app is called Sweet Snap and there is an upgrade called Sweet snap lite.
This is a dangerous app to download. If downloaded it has been reported to also download additional software to your phone siltently. There have been instances of student's photos being uploaded from the phone silently too. There are multiple adults accessing the chat and trying to talk to the chilldren in a sexual manner.
The relevant authroities are aware of this App but we are dvising that all parents/carers check their child's phone and remove this app if they have it.
Please can you speak to your child about online safety.

If you have any concerns regarding any apps or online safety, then please inform the Police and school.
