Concerns about Social Media
It has come to our attention today that Tik Tok, Facebook and Twitter platforms have been used to stream inappropriate content to viewers.
Graphic content of a suicide nature has been hidden within videos of puppies and kittens to lure children to view.
Our recommendation is to remove Tik Tok from any child's device as content cannot be unseen or retracted.
Parents/Caregivers will need to actively monitor children's use of all social media.
ANAPHYLAXIS AWARENESS AND SAFETY

ANAPHYLAXIS AWARENESS AND SAFETY
You will all be aware of the extreme reactions that bee stings, nuts and other food or plant allergies can bring to children.
At Salford School we have staff and students with varying allergies and body responses to these allergens. Some that can be treated easily with antihistamine or creams and others that are more severe requiring epi-pens and immediate medical treatment.
The intensity of exposure and resulting reactions vary just as much as the treatment.
We currently have a student who is a level 6 reactor. This is the highest level there is on this scale.
This means that should they come into contact with nuts at all (even if someone else has had a peanut butter sandwich and touched a door handle and then the child touches the door handle some time afterward) their body will react violently and quickly leaving the smallest amount of time for help to be obtained and administered.
In order to support this child (and others who also react but not so strongly) in being able to attend school safely, Salford School will be a nut free school.
We please ask that you support this by ensuring children do not bring nuts, nut products or food items containing nuts to school at any time.
Just the residue of nut traces on someone’s hands is enough to cause a rapid, violent reaction.
Thank you for helping us keep all of the children at Salford School safe.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Please keep unwell students at home. We have had to send a number of students home today unwell, some of whom presented symptons on arrival at school.
We have a tummy bug moving through the classrooms. Stand down period for a child presenting with vomiting/diarrhea is 24/48 hours - dependent on last episode.
If children are not kept home, the risk of the illness passing to other children in a school environment is high.
Thanking you for your consideration.
