Fortnite Concerns


As part of our commitment to safeguarding children in all aspects of their life, we take a great interest in the potential dangers that technology can bring, and how it affects the development and well-being of young people.

Although rated at a 12 by PEGI, some younger children are playing the popular game Fortnite, and a report on the BBC today will be a valuable read for some parents:

It covers concerns raised by the NSPCC and includes some relevant advice:

The NSPCC said parents should:

  • let children know they could talk to them if upset or worried by anything they had seen online

  • familiarise themselves with what their children did online and understand why they liked particular apps or games

  • agree family rules on how to use apps, sites and games

  • use privacy settings and parental controls to keep children safe
