Online Safety Concern (Fortnite)

The aim of the game is to kill everyone else until you're the only one left. It shows graphic animated imagery. It is for children aged 12 to 13 years and over and it is very addictive. Because of the violence and online chat function pupils can be exposed to stranger danger and bad language. Like all computer games it can affect behaviour, moods and sleeping patterns depending on the length of time a child plays it. These effects have certainly been evident in the behaviour and performance of some older pupils.

Sport

The Infants have just started swimming again and will continue until 7th June. Congratulations to Ben & Maddy who achieved their green badges and Ivy who achieved her yellow. Daniella also achieved her bronze ASA front crawl speed test.
