IMPORTANT E-SAFETY MESSAGE

Posted on 31st March 2017 | News

St. Mary’s Grammar school wishes to alert parents to an increasingly popular app named SimSimi. We strongly advise against the use of this app and recommend that it is deleted from all mobile and personal devices immediately. This app randomly generates generic messages and responses, the content of which is inappropriate and, therefore, can lead to incidences of cyber bullying.

We, as a school, have blocked the use of this app on school mobile devices. We would ask that all parents are vigilant and that they speak with their child and warn them of the potential dangers around using this app. We advise that parents supervise the removal of this app from their child’s mobile phone. If, as a parent/guardian, you are concerned about the impact that this app may have had on your child’s health and well-being, please contact a member of the Safeguarding / e-Safety team.
