We have received information from Thames Valley Police warning us about a new TikTok craze called ‘Tap Out or Black Out’.
The craze involves holding a student in a headlock until they either submit, ‘tap out’ or, sadly, ‘black out’.
A student at a Buckinghamshire school this week blacked out, banged his head on the ground, and is currently in a coma.
Please be aware of what your child is viewing on TikTok and the potentially fatal consequences of this practice.
We will prepare an announcement for Monday morning’s tutor time and assemblies to inform students about the very serious dangers of this practice.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
