Social Media Update

Social Media Update


Instagram is increasingly being used outside of school by pupils across each year group. As we know, the minimum age for this app is 13 – this is because children under this age are not responsible enough to use the app in a sensible way. Proof of this is the number of times we have to deal with the fall out due to children using Instagram (and other social media) irresponsibly and inappropriately.


Extremely valuable time is being spent dealing with these incidents that occur outside school that are also affecting relationships and friendships within our school.


We strongly recommend that all parents delete this app, and any other social media accounts, from phones and tablets for all children and that parents closely monitor their children’s use of the internet and mobile phones.
