PROUD - UnityE-Safety Warning

We always endeavour to keep our parents up-to-date with the latest e-safety information, to help them ensure the safety of students whilst they are online. Please be aware of a new app launched recently, which has led to many child protection services working together to safeguard children E-Safety Warningwho are using it.
The ‘FaceCast’ app, although designed for those over 18, allows children who state they are 13 to access it and use a live video mode, chat to strangers and to earn in-app coins; there is now a concern that the app is being used as a platform for child sexual exploitation. If you find this app on your child’s phone as part of your regular checks, we recommend you delete the app to ensure their safety.
If you have any concerns or would like to discuss this matter in more detail, please contact a member of the CCHS Safeguarding team, via the school reception on 01255 424266.
If you are concerned that your child may have been exploited via the FaceCast app, please contact the police.
