Internet Safety

The Aspire Academy Trust takes internet safety extremely seriously.  We appreciate it can all be a bit of a minefield, both in keeping up with your child's IT habits and skills and navigating what's appropriate and what's not on the great world wide web.  So, in order to stay as digitally safe as possible, we have put together a list of regularly updated links and downloads we hope you will find useful.

Squid Game - Parent Warning

Parents are urged not to let their children watch the new Netflix show Squid Game for fear of children mimicking games in the school playground, similar to those seen in the South Korean series. 

The age rating for Squid Game on Netflix is TV-MA, which means for mature audiences only. According to TV guidelines, TV-MA indicates "this program is specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for children under 17 years.  Netflix gives a series of content warnings including sex, violence and suicide. 

As a parent or carer, please keep a watchful eye on the content that your children are viewing. Ensure that 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.
