What parents need to know about The Momo Challenge

Dear Parent/Carers


We have recently received a number of messages and warnings across the Internet describing an apparent new phenomenon called the ‘Momo Challenge.’

These warnings claim that the ‘Momo Challenge’ is a ‘game’ where children are tricked into performing increasingly violent acts including self-harm.   We have been advised that references to the ‘Momo Challenge’ are currently spreading on social media apps including Facebook and WhatsApp.

As such, we would like to draw the attention of parents/carers to the advice provided by the National Online Safety Hub using the link below.



If you do have any concerns in this regard, please contact the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Bloomer on 0121 743 3402.
