A new app has recently launched that has led to many child protection services working together to safeguard children who are using it, due to the concern that the app is being used as a platform for child sexual exploitation. The ‘Face Cast’ app- although designed for those over 18- allows children who state they are 13+ to access it and use live video mode, chat to strangers and earn in app coins. The reviews for this app are damning and it is clear that the app is being used to exploit children. Please can you ensure that your child’s phone is regularly checked and, if this app is found, please remove it.
My name is Mr Thompson and I am the class teacher in year 5 as well as the PE subject leader. This is going to be my second year teaching at Park and it is one that I am really looking forward to. Away from the classroom, I enjoy socialising with friends, going to the gym and taking part in a variety of sports.
