Squid Game - What Parents Need To Know

Squid Game. You may have watched this hit Netflix series or heard your children talking about it. It has become a huge hit, but ultimately it is about people dying (fictionally) when they lose a game or challenge. There are now apps related to Squid Game too. All of these come with risk and dangers to children, specifically around the series being rated 15 for a reason. Below is a link to the risk involved and advice on how to keep your child safe. All of our classes will be discussing this game with their teacher this week and will have the opportunity to ask questions and raise worries or concerns. Please speak to school if you have any further questions or worries.
