Fortnite Letter 2

We are concerned by the number and the frequency of negative incidents which are stemming from children playing Fortnight. We are writing this letter to remind you of the type of negative experience that your child will very likely be exposed to if you choose to let them play this game.

What is Fortnight?

Fortnight is an action game in which players build forts, gather resources, craft weapons, and battle hordes of monsters and other players in frenetic combat.

Rating

Fortnight is rated for 13-year olds. This means the game is considered to be suitable for children that are 13-years old and older.

Offensive language / mature content / exposure to the public

The game’s online chat feature - especially in Battle Royale mode - frequently exposes young players to offensive language and mature content from strangers. (Though this can be limited if the option to restrict play to ‘friends’ is enforced.) There is live, unmoderated chat possible between users in the console and PC versions of Fortnight. Both voice chat and on-screen text chat are options.

Manley Park Communication Group Introduction

We are writing to introduce Manley Park’s Communications Group. We are a diverse group of staff, governors and parents who formed in early 2018 with the aim of improving communications between our school and our parents.

Since then we have been busy considering all the ways in which we communicate with each other. We have been examining the technology we use and the personal interactions we have with each other throughout the school day to see what we could be doing better.

We’re contacting you today because we like to hear your thoughts about how the School communicates and interacts with you; your feedback, observations and suggestions play a major role in helping us to celebrate and do more of what works well, as well as shining a light on where things can be improved.
