Fortnight Game (some additional information)

Good afternoon

I am sure that many of you are aware that the video game Fortnite has become a big hit and is certainly a regular topic of discussion in school. The media have had a few scare stories about the game but we have found a useful guide for parents which will tell you more about the game and any particular risks. Whilst all online games have a risk with regard to contact with others most of our students are aware of these risks and act in a sensible manner.

With this particular game one of the key issues is the amount of time that young people are spending playing the game, and in some cases increased levels of aggression. The game itself is not particularly explicit but it is very involving. The game is free but there are also some new elements added which allow players to purchase items and again this may be an issue in some cases.

I hope you find the guide useful, and may wish to visit https://nationalonlinesafety.com/ for further information.

As always, feel free to contact me should you have any concerns or further questions.

Regards

Mr Hartley
