We are very fortunate to have Lloren LaFave join us at Ravenscote to speak to your children and you about keeping safe online. Lloren knows first-hand of the tragedy that can come from unsafe behaviour online. Here is some information about the foundation she set up.
“The Breck Foundation was set up in 2014 in response to the tragic murder of Breck Bednar, a14-year-old Surrey schoolboy who loved science, computing and gaming. No one would have expected Breck to be a victim of grooming; he was an 'A' grade student from a loving family Breck and his friends were groomed by a man who ran an internet gaming server. They were told an elaborate web of lies to gain their trust. Despite many attempts to stop her son from contacting the predator, and to alert him to the fact that he was being groomed, Lorin LaFave was unable to prevent her son’s murder in February 2014. Breck had ignored the safety advice he had been given by friends and family, and was lured to the predator’s flat by fake promises and lies.
As a result of the tragedy, Lorin founded the Breck Foundation, determined that no other family should have to go through the same ordeal. The charity now delivers powerful presentations using Breck’s story as an example; last year it reached more than 20,000 students, 4,000 parents and 7,000 safeguarding professionals. Lorin believes that had her son seen the kind of talk that the foundation now presents to schools, he would still be alive today.”
In order to make child care easier, Ravenscote staff will be showing a film for the children whilst you are at the parent meeting. Please drop your child off in 4A just before 6:30pm and then make your way to the hall for the meeting. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there.
