Message from Police

29 November 2022

The police have asked all Bromely Schools to ensure they have this message available to parents to make them aware:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear parents and guardians,

As a result of an ongoing investigation, we have been made aware there may be a video(s) with deeply concerning and inappropriate content being circulated via electronic devices and/or being shared or viewed, from child to child within our Bromley schools.

Due to the digital nature of this material, it can be shared across multiple platforms extremely quickly and it is impossible for us to limit or halt the transmission. Therefore we are taking the unusual step of asking for your immediate assistance as we do all we can to safeguard and protect our children.  

Please can I urge you to review your child’s phone and if any inappropriate content is found, take control of the phone and raise it with your school's Headteacher. The content or information can then be assessed and escalated, if necessary, either to police or other appropriate agencies.

The purpose of this email is to protect the welfare of our children and ensure those affected are provided with the necessary support.

Yours sincerely,

Kathy Morteo
