Sarahah app/website

Dear Parents/Carers,

We would like to make you aware of a new app and website called ‘Sarahah’.

What is Sarahah?

  • An app and website that allows users to send and receive anonymous message.
  • Users cannot respond to messages but they can “favourite” messages.
  • By default, anyone can leave a message on a profile even if they don’t have an account.

Why are we posting about this?

  • The Sarahah app has become popular amongst teens and we’re aware that some of our pupils are already actively using it. The app promotes anonymity – making teens feel like they can hide behind their anonymous screen names and bully others without repercussions.
  • Sarahah is predominantly used to bully other users.
  • There is no filter for explicit content.
  • There is no way to report inappropriate content or threats.

What can parents do?

  • We would advise parents to discuss the dangers of anonymous apps and have their child delete their Sarahah account (if they use Sarahah).
  • Ensure your child knows what is appropriate to send in private and public messages, whether they are anonymous or not
  • If your child has a desire to use apps like Sarahah, please challenge them to give positive and constructive feedback offline instead.

A full video guide covering all aspects of Sarahah can be found by clicking here.

As a school we do cover many aspects of anonymity, appropriate online behaviour and social networks in our regular e-safety assemblies and lessons.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding e-safety please do check out our dedicated e-safety section where you can find guidance on many different websites/apps.

September 2017 Bulletin

Welcome Back – I hope that everyone had a enjoyable summer with their family and I welcome the new Year 7 parents/carers to Brockington College. Your children have settled very quickly into secondary school life and we look forward to working with you and them over the next five years. Our first ever ‘all-though’ cohort at Brockington College have now settled into apprenticeships, training, sixth form colleges and further education colleges following their GCSE results. We are very proud of their achievements at GCSE level and of their development as individuals. Some of the headline data can be seen in the bulletin.
