Safeguarding Alert

We wish to make you aware of an online game called DOKI DOKI also known as Doki Doki Literature Club. Developed in 2017, it does warn it is not suitable for children however the graphics are clearly aimed at young people.

This is a psychological horror game with suicide as a main feature. This game is free of charge but an upgraded version can be purchased for to unlock extra content.
NSPCC Online Safety team are now alerted to its existence.

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.
