TikTok Warning

𝗧𝗶𝗸𝗧𝗼𝗸 𝗛𝗮𝗿𝗺 𝗥𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻-

It has been brought to our attention that there is yet another horrible trend circulating TikTok recently. This trend involves people dressing up as 'Plague doctors' and scaring children and families by hiding near schools and threatening violence and assault via video.

Whilst we are very lucky that this doesn't seem to have reached Portsmouth (yet), it is still very prominent on the app and have had a few children quite worried about this.

We would like to remind parents to try and be mindful and vigilant on what their children are watching online and having conversations about what they're seeing. We are also asking for you to have a chat with your child about not sharing these sort of videos with their friends as they may or may not be allowed on these sites.

I would also like to remind parents that TikTok is an age 12+ platform.

Please find below some advice for helping to keep your child safe on TikTok.
