Internet Safety




It has come to our attention that a number of children are accessing TikTok either through their own accounts or their parents accounts.
This is highly unacceptable and poses a huge risk to children. The legal age for possessing a TikTok account is 13.
Without a clear knowledge of the dangers of this video- sharing app ( hence which it has an age restriction) children are at risk of watching unacceptable content and causing harm, which in turn becomes a safeguarding concern.
I have attached the national guidance with relation to TikTok and hope that you will support us in ensuring that your child, none of whom who attend Bracebridge are of legal age should be watching or using TikTok.
Many thanks



Siren Head

It has come to our attention that a number of children are watching clips on You Tube or playing the game Siren head whilst they are at home.

Siren head is an aggressive  predator making him a dangerous threat. It is an extremely violent monster who causes harm, serious injury or even death to others.

The age for Siren head is 18 and therefore no children should be watching anything regarding this. 

Should we continue to have further reports from any child, we will report to the relevant authorities. Allowing children to access inappropriate material online is against the law.

Please ensure you are monitoring what your child is watching online, especially You Tube at all times.

Do NOT allow your child to watch their tablet, IPAD or computer in their bedroom alone unsupervised.

Many thanks for your support.



We have joined together with the National Online Safety (NOS) Campaign so together we can make it our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We believe that through engaging Online Safety resources and through equipping parents and children with the knowledge they need to understand online dangers, we can together make a difference.

The NOS provides guides for parents as part of their #WakeUpWednesday campaign and it is viewed as one of the most trusted and reputable learning resources in the UK, providing expert advice on the latest platforms and online risks that parents and carers need to know about.

We shall be sharing these weekly guides with parents every Wednesday via our Parent Hub App and they are also available below. 


A Parents and Carers Guide to Toddlers and Screen Time

This guide focuses on toddlers and screen time. It highlights a number of tips such as setting parental controls, removing devices at certain times and using screen time as a reward.


Netflix’s Squid Game is set to become the streaming service’s most successful show of all time, with huge numbers of viewers taking to social media to discuss each new episode. The South Korean thriller features some scenes of fairly brutal violence and is rated 15 by the BBFC. It follows a group of adults who compete to win innocent-looking playground games, but who are killed if they do not succeed at the tasks.

Squid Game’s 15 rating has not prevented clips and images from the show being uploaded onto social media sites such as TikTok, with the #SquidGame hashtag being viewed more than 22.8 billion times. There have been reports of children who have accounts on these platforms inadvertently viewing gory, explicit scenes from the programme, and parents and carers should be mindful of the prevalence of these uploads.
