MOMO Challenge - E-Safety

You may have heard about the Momo Challenge which targets children via What’s App and indirectly via social media and YouTube. Children are enticed to contact a user named Momo then they are instructed to perform a series of dangerous tasks which encourage self-harm and suicide. Messages are usually accompanied by frightening or gory pictures. If the tasks are not completed, graphic threats are then sent.

You can find out more about the Momo Challenge by using this link:

GETTING TO SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER

As you may be aware essential works are needed to the bridge that carries the A6 through Stockport town centre this summer.  This means that part of the A6 will be closed from Exchange Street (Garrick Theatre) to Heaton Lane, from Monday 24th July for up to 12 weeks. 

As the works will still be taking place when we return to school after the summer holidays, the closure may affect some student’s journeys.  Please can we ask parents to bear this in mind when they planning for September, allowing a few more minutes for journeys so that we can start lessons on time.  You can find out more about what is happening and the diversion routes in place on the Council’s website  https://www.stockport.gov.uk/topic/a6-bridge-works
