Risks and concerns around children playing the online game Fortnite, which has a 12 rating but is played by much younger children.
There is an emerging trend, where people are playing strip Fortnite using webcams. The rule is that when you achieve a “kill” you have to strip off, potentially adding an additional risk from children being exposed to and/or sharing indecent images whilst playing the game.
Please could you share this information with parents and colleagues and remind them that any inappropriate/unlawful contact with children online needs to be reported to the CSE Hub Advice Line on 01274 435049
Message from the Head Teacher
I am excited and proud to have been given the opportunity of the headship at Ellar Carr. Thank you for taking the time to read our website. We hope that by doing so you will begin to get a flavour of the warm, exciting and vibrant place that Ellar Carr is.
At Ellar Carr, our pupils are respected as individuals and we aim to give them opportunities that would not otherwise be available to them in a mainstream school setting. We believe in making sure that each pupil feels safe and secure, knowing that dedicated staff are here to help them achieve their full potential. Each pupil has access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which is differentiated to ensure all of their needs are met.
Every day we are witness to the outstanding achievements of our pupils, facilitated by a diversity of practice from our staff team. This practice has been recognised by Ofsted as ‘Good’ and we are naturally proud of this – however, the greater prize is seeing our young people grow into caring, responsible and active members of society.
We cannot put everything that we want to share with you in this website but hopefully we can provide an insight and our always happy to welcome visitors to the school. I look forward to getting to know all our pupils and their parents and carers over the course of the year and thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
