What Parents and Carers need to know about TikTok

Squid Game 

In school, there are more and more children referencing the Netflix series, ‘Squad Game’. This South Korean thriller features some scenes of fairly brutal violence and is rated 15 by the BBFC. It follows a group of adults who compete to win innocent-looking playground games, but who are killed if they do not succeed at the tasks. Parents and Carers need to be reminded that this is not appropriate viewing for those under 16 years of age.

 

We have also read that there is a viral trend on TikTok (linked to Squid Games) where children are boiling sugar and ending up being admitted to hospital with burns.  

 

Please keep a watchful eye on the content that our children are viewing and remember to speak openly and chat about how they have been spending time on their devices; let them ask questions too. Ensure parental controls are activated and that age-restricted child profiles are properly set up.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact school.

Thank you.
