Invitation to Parents to screening of "Breck's Last Game"
5th February 2019
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am writing to advise you that during the week commencing 18th March all students are completing an education pilot across three English lessons. This work is based on ‘Breck’s Last Game’, a short video about online grooming.
Breck Bednar was murdered by Lewis Daynes in Grays, Essex, in 2014. The film explains how the teenager from Caterham (Surrey) played games online with friends, on a server run by his killer.
The film has been produced by four police forces and in close consultation with Breck’s mother, Lorin LaFave. It aims to educate and protect students from online grooming. ‘Breck’s Last Game’ is being delivered to all Surrey secondary school students before a nationwide release in May 2019.
We will be offering parents two opportunities to view the film and learn more about grooming and how you can help your child to stay safe. The showings will be at 3.30pm on 7th and 14th March prior to two planned Parents’ Evenings and will last half an hour. The showing on either date is open to parents from all year groups and no booking is required.
Please find a link below from Lorin LaFave encouraging you to come to the parents’ presentation.
The film is created with support from the Breck Foundation charity. Further information about the charity and its work can be found at www.breckfoundation.org.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01483 414516.
