Something we’re currently monitoring in school is that some children are playing games at playtime that could be related to the Netflix show, Squid Game.
Whilst the show itself is rated 15 and is unsuitable for viewing for any and all of our children, it appears that there are now online games (eg. Roblox), memes and social media (Tik Tok and You Tube) producing content based on the show.
I’ve read that these apps and online games convey the violence of the show, some of which use original footage, and I feel it’s worth clicking the link below to read more about this.
At school, we’ll continue to monitor this as usual, and support children where we need to.
