Downloading Apps and Parental Vigilance

A few children in Year 6 have alerted us to an app that requests their personal information such as names and addresses. The children know this is unsafe but wanted us to communicate this more widely.

The app is called Talking Angela   https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.outfit7.talkingangelafree

I also spoke to a parent at the gate this week who suggested I remind you of the cost of inadvertently (and innocently) sharing an iTunes password with a young child. In his case, his child has made in app purchases costing over £300!

Finally the rain has ceased and the possibility of sunshine is upon us. Whilst this is a short term it will be a busy one and we look forward to everybody's participation in school life.
