Safeguarding Alert

An app called ‘Yellow’ is becoming popular amongst pupils which is advertised as a dating app for 11-16 year olds. Within the app, pupils can ‘go live’ which enables them to chat to any other person who is ‘live’ on the app. There is a facility for messaging as well as sending and receiving pictures. As a school we would encourage extreme caution in using this app as anyone could create a profile and claim to be an 11-16 year old. We would ask you to discuss this with your child/children and recommend that the app is deleted due to the potential risks.  Please ensure that you close/cancel the account within the yellow app prior to deleting the app. If only the app is deleted without the account being closed, children can still be messaged/sent images as the app is linked to snapchat.  Thank you for your support in this matter.
