It has come to our attention that there are several Tik Tok accounts being set up by Saint Benedict students, that contain pictures or video clips of other students without their permission. These have been reported to Tik Tok and the Police.

As outlined in the previous safeguarding newsletter, it is illegal for students to use Tik Tok if they are under 13 years of age, or to post media without a student’s permission.

We cannot stress enough, the importance of checking your child’s mobile device on a regular basis to ensure their safety as well as checking that they are behaving in an appropriate manner. Please ensure that they have got their privacy settings set to private if they are using social media applications.

Information on how to set a TikTok account can be found here:


If your child has created any inappropriate material, please delete and close the account.

If you find any other videos or accounts that you would like to report, then please do the following.


Many Thanks for your understanding in this matter.
