On Friday we hosted Lorin LaFave who spoke to Year 7 about losing her 14-year-old son, Breck Bednar, who was killed by someone he met playing online computer games.
The main aim of the workshop was to educate children on the signs of grooming, who to talk to with a concern, how to support their friends and to think carefully about who they are talking to through these platforms.
The workshop was extremely powerful and the pupils left with a greater understanding of the risks of online gaming and the steps a person takes to groom an individual.
In honour of the memory of her son, Lorin set up the Breck Foundation to help educate other young people and to help them keep safe online. Lorin travels the UK visiting schools, and campaigning for a safer internet.
