‘Let’s get to cunch-line’
From the Children’s Commissioners 2019 report ‘Gaming the System’ we know that around 93% of children in the UK play video games and this leisure time has benefits for their development.

Our team of online safety experts regularly review new and emerging games and stress test their parental and privacy controls. Our Safer Schools Network has brought us two games that are making waves in schools across the UK.
This article explains how these games are played and presents our results on the efficacy of their safety and privacy settings.
