You may or may not be aware of a worrying video/image ‘challenge’ that has been around for some time which has once again come to the attention of the media and the police. Whilst there have been no official reports or verified evidence of anybody receiving messages from this particular 'challenge', the emergence of the news story provides a timely reminder of the need to educate our children about E-Safety.
The link below enables access to the National Online Safety website
which provides up to date guides for the most current popular
technologies, social media apps and platforms.

alarming viral crazes.
We want to reassure you that we take E-Safety very seriously at William Lilley and we will use this page to share with you any information that we receive from official capacities. We have filtering systems in place to prevent children at school accessing websites considered to be unsafe or inappropriate. We teach children the importance of keeping their personal details private and safe and how to behave politely and responsibly online. Children also learn to tell a trusted adult if they don't like what they see online. Pupils are never left unattended whilst online and teachers ensure that this does not happen.
For more information about E-Safety, please see the links below. These are not an exhaustive list but provide the key organisations who are working hard to keep our children safe.
