Discord is a communication tool for gamers. It has a 13+ age restriction on it because it allows users to enter what they call ‘servers’ to talk with other gamers. It also allows for private messages and private video chats. As all of our children are under 13, none of the children at our school should be on Discord, but if they are, the recommendation is that you delete it from their devices immediately.
We have been contacted today about inappropriate use being made of this app, with regard to grooming. Please read the following two posters for more information on Discord and on Grooming.
Please remember to regularly check children’s devices and messages, to ensure they are not at risk of grooming, or inappropriate/potentially dangerous communications.
