Safter Internet Use – Dangerous Apps

Yome Live is a dangerous live streaming app that has come onto our radar. It poses risks to children and young people in your care. Make sure you DO NOT disclose the name of this app to the young people in your care, as we know this can spark curiosity. 

  • ‘Yome Live’ (pronounced Yo-Me) enables users to publicly live stream video or voice chat. 
  • This live streaming app creates an easy-to-access video and chat environment frequented by adults involved in highly sexualised behaviour targeted at children and young people.
  • We observed children being sent gifts in attempts to persuade them to ‘follow’ and ‘chat privately’ with adult users.

Coronavirus update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Today we have received advice from the Department for Education (DfE) regarding the Coronavirus. The overall risk of Coronavirus remains moderate. The purpose of this letter is to share the guidance that we have received with you which emphasises the importance of good hygiene.

Advice for parents and carers

The DfE has advised that you should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus and there is no reason why your children should not continue to attend school as normal.

The DfE recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link below.

Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling or returning from the area. This can be found at:

What action we can take

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.
