BlueWhale app - Warning

03 May 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians

It has come to our attention that the police and media are warning the public about a new App – Blue Whale – which encourages its followers to take part in a number of challenges, including self-harm and attempts at suicide. The app originated in Russia, spread to the UK and has seen a steady growth in popularity over the last week or so.

We would therefore ask all parents and guardians to discourage their children from using it. If your child already this app please support them by getting them to remove it.

Mr S Thompson
(Vice-Principal Pastoral)
