What Parents and Carers Need to Know About Chatroulette - #WakeUpWednesday

What Parents and Carers Need to Know About

Chatroulette

 

Before Zoom, before Teams, there was Chatroulette. But users of that video calling software tended not to be offering anything as innocent as a quiz, and there was usually only one item on the agenda. A runaway word-of-mouth success on its launch in 2009, Chatroulette since seemed to have melted away into internet obscurity. But a surge of new users during lockdown appears to have brought it back from the brink.

 

So what happens on Chatroulette calls? Is there really as much inappropriate content as popular opinion would suggest? Who uses the service? And is any part of it safe … at all? This week’s free #WakeUpWednesday guide investigates.

Reminder for week commencing 22.02.21

Just a reminder that next week, pupils in Key Stage 1-3 will continue to work remotely at home and not attend school in person. This is due to ongoing IT issues and a significant amount of contractors are still on site so it will not be safe for pupils to be on site as well.

Staff will continue to send work packs out for completion and complete remote teaching sessions daily. We will make contact will parents and pupils each day as a safe and well check and also to support with work completion. If pupils are not seen via teams, safe and well visits will be completed.

This will also include GCSE pupils who attend New Leaf, for the times they complete their GCSE lessons. These sessions will be completed remotely.

All KS4 will continue to attend their provision as per current arrangements.

Next week we will contact parents individually to arrange for parents and pupils to come to the new premises, have a tour and transition pupils back into school.

Regards,
Mr S Evans
Headteacher
