Social Media Alert
We have received information from a local school that a person calling “himself”   “Jim Hall” (@jimhall300) is sending students pornographic videos via the app “Music.ly” and is befriending children and young girls.  We will be talking to students in school about this, but please check with your children that they are not in contact with this person.  Any concerns resulting from your conversations can be raised with myself or Mr Emberton via our dedicated Safeguarding e-mail address worrybox@hrs.education.
