Please be aware of the following statement issued by the West Midlands Police; If your child uses Instagram please share this with them.

“We have had information that students at a number of secondary schools across Staffordshire, Stoke and Cheshire East have been contacted by a bogus modelling company, ‘Starlett or Scarlett Bookings Agency’ on Instagram pressurising young people into sending inappropriate images.

Initially, these requests will be modelling their favourite outfits, then a bikini shoot and finally a naked photo to analyse their body type coupled with threats if not forthcoming.”

If any students, parents or carers have any concerns regarding this matter please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead Miss S Woodbine via swoodbine@oswba.co.uk
