What you need to know about the ‘Momo Challenge’
Given recent media coverage of the “Momo Challenge” it’s likely that you or children in your school community have heard about Momo. While this may not be totally ‘fake news’ this is definitely exaggerated news. We’ve released a short video into the Safer Schools App today, which will appear to Staff, Parents and Carers, on how to best start a conversation about such stories when speaking to children in their care.
Share with your school community
Please help share our Momo Challenge video to parents and staff within your school community. You can put the video on your school website, or include it in Parent Emails and Social Media.
