    Illegal Parking
    Due to further complaints this afternoon can we remind all parents to adhere to the parking restrictions on Home Farm Close and Cooper Lane. These restrictions are in place for the safety of our children. Reversing and turning in the drive above the gates is a danger to our children. We will continue to work with the traffic warden and report concerns. We often get a better response when our parents also report to them. Their number is 01274 431000 Option 8.

    'Squid Game’ Trending across Platforms: What Parents Need to Know
    'Squid Game’ Trending across Platforms: What Parents Need to Know At Home Farm we have already experienced children discussing the show and the games played within it. So we wanted to share information with parents about the potential risks surrounding the recent Netflix programme. The following information had been taken from https://nationalonlinesafety.com/ What is Squid Game? Netflix’s Squid Game is set to become the streaming service’s most successful show of all time, with huge numbers of viewers taking to social media to discuss each new episode. The 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. An unexpected success in terms of viewing figures, Squid Game’s popularity is beginning to spread across various online platforms. There has been a slew of content created – ranging from memes to apps – that convey the violence of the show, so it is important for parents, carers and educators to understand the basis of Squid Game and the potential risks to young people who might be exposed to it. What are the hazards for children? Squid Game’s 15 rating has not prevented clips and images from the show being uploaded onto social media sites such as TikTok, with the #SquidGame hashtag being viewed more than 22.8 billion times. There have been reports of children who have accounts on these platforms inadvertently viewing gory, explicit scenes from the programme, and parents and carers should be mindful of the prevalence of these uploads. The popularity of the programme has also led to online challenges based on various scenes, which see people taking part in seemingly innocent children’s games. On the show, however, characters are executed if they fail in the game – and videos of people pretending to kill each other after competing in Squid Game-style contests are going viral on social media, where they are easily accessible to children. What is the Squid Game Challenge app? Squid Game Challenge (also known as K-Game Challenge) is an app for smartphones and tablets that has been released for Android and iOs, and the two systems differ significantly on their age ratings for the game. The iTunes Store rates the app as 12+ (advising of “mild/infrequent horror/fear themes”), while the PEGI rating for Android is just 3+, which means that very young children might be able to download and play the game even with parental controls activated on their device or through Google Play. The gameplay is frequently interrupted by pop-ups and ads (sometimes appearing while the user is rapidly tapping their screen while attempting to complete the challenge). This could easily lead to unwanted purchases or accidental visits to inappropriate sites beyond the app. What can trusted adults do? As a parent or carer, keep a watchful eye on the content that your children are viewing. Speak to them openly and chat about how they have been spending time on their devices; let them ask questions, too. Ensure that the parental controls are activated on your child’s device and that age-restricted child profiles are properly set up any on-demand services available through the family TV (such as Netflix, in this case) to prevent inappropriate content being streamed. If you see your child replicating the challenges from the show or hear them talking about scenes and characters from Squid Game, it would be a timely opportunity to discuss with them that the programme is not intended for children, that much of the content would be inappropriate for their age, and that the violence in the series is very realistic and often upsetting. I have attached some helpful parent guides for further information. Thank you for your continued support in keeping all our Home Farm Family Safe online.

    Parking on Cooper Lane
    Please could we remind parents to be considerate when parking on Cooper Lane. Today we have received a complaint from a local resident. Her drive way was blocked this morning and she had to wait 25 mins with her new-born baby in the car before gaining access to her property. As a school we will continue to work with traffic wardens, report concerns and fines will be issued by Highways England if required. Please work with us to keep the roads and paths around our school safe for everyone
