As you may be aware, a new game has recently launched in the UK called Pokemon Go. It uses augmented reality, to display pokemon characters in real places, which are visible using a phone or tablet's camera.

Children play the game by following a map on their phones to find items. Whilst the idea is a great concept, the game has many potential dangers which we feel you need to be aware of, should your child play the game over summer.

The game can potentially lead students to unfamiliar places, creating physical risks and also potentially meeting people they do not know.

If your child is playing this game, we would advise that they are not left unattended when doing so and are warned about the dangers of playing the game.
