Squid Game


Parents need to know that the level of violence is very intense in Squid Game. Characters are systematically tortured and killed for the sadistic pleasure of a game master. Adults have sex, and there are threats of sexual violence — women are grabbed by the hair and beaten. Themes concerning the highs one gets from gambling, winning, or conning money are a main focus. ​

Many children are talking about watching clips of this show on Netflix, Tik Tok and Youtube.  Please be mindful of what our children are watching on the internet.

19th March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to you today to share the arrangements for next week and possibly beyond, however, this could change in the current climate.

As from Monday we will be open as usual for identified groups of pupils. The groups stated by the government are as follows:

NHS staff, police, supermarket delivery drivers and those included in the key worker categories list due to be released by the government, who will be crucial to supporting the country’s fight to tackle coronavirus.

Vulnerable children, including those who have a social worker and those with Education, Health and Care Plans – a legal document that describes a child’s special educational needs and the support they require – may need to be in school.

If you are in any doubt as to whether or not your child is eligible for a school place during this time please contact us or email me at

On Friday, we will be sending home ‘home learning’ packs in preparation for school closure. We will text times for parents with children already at home to arrange collection of the packs. This will be shared on Friday.  Links to all online learning platforms are also available on the school website.

If you feel you are in an eligible group to attend school and you will be sending your child/ren in on Monday please let us know as sson as possible.

I wish you all peace and calm at this very difficult time.

Take care,

Patricia Cuncarr
