Breck and the Online Troll

This is an educational book about a real-life story and contains some upsetting themes. It should be
introduced in an environment where children can talk and learn in a supported way. For children with the cognitive age of 8+. 

 

Breck is a strong and fearless knight. When he is befriended by a Troll called Lewis, all is not as it seems. Is it all just a fantasy? Or a terrible truth within?

 

'Breck and the Online Troll' is designed for special needs and lower-age students to introduce basic online and grooming safety to children.

This is Breck

This is an educational book about a real-life story and contains some upsetting themes. It should be
introduced in an environment where children can talk and learn in a supported way. Ideal for children with the cognitive age of 4+. 

 

This version of the Breck story deals less with the emotions of the Breck story and more with the literal event, making it ideal for autistic children.

A Breck Foundation film: Breck's Last Game

Breck's Last Game is our award-winning film that was a collaboration between us and four police forces. It won
a silver medal at Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards
in 2019.

We use it in our secondary presentations to highlight the risks of grooming by asking the question: “Do you know who your online friends really are?” , but the film is also an excellent way for parents to open up conversations with teenagers about online safety. Please do watch the film first to assess whether this is right for your child.

*Trigger Warning* - grooming, coercive behaviour + violence. This film would be rated 15 if shown in cinemas.

Murder Games:
clips from the BBC documentary

On the BBC Teach pages, there are a series of clips from the BBC Three docudrama, 'Murder Games: The Life and Death of Breck Bednar'.

 

These clips are relevant for teaching PSHE and computing at KS3 and KS4 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4 and 5 in Scotland.

 

Teacher resources 

We have downloadable resources for teachers to use with their classes after our in-school presentations.

St Mary’s Primary School

Everything was impactful. Hard-hitting but a real eye opener. 

Parent resources

Whilst some of the resources below were originally created with teachers in mind, they will still be helpful for those parents wanting to engage their children in online safety or keep conversations going which may have started after one of our school or parents speaker sessions.
