Breck's Last Game
Short film & lesson plans
Breck's Last Game (certificate 15) has been rolled out in secondary schools across the UK to raise highlight the risks of grooming by asking the question, “Do you know who your online friends really are?”. The video was launched in April 2019 and a resource pack is available for schools to be included in PSHE lessons alongside the film. The project, to put the film and related lessons plans together, is the work of an innovative collaboration between ourselves and four police forces – Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Essex and Surrey.
Breck’s killer, Lewis Daynes, ran an online server where Breck, and several of his friends, played games online and it was through this forum that Lewis Daynes groomed Breck over 13 months – telling him a series of lies, turning him against family and friends, and eventually luring him to his flat on 17th February 2014 on the promise of handing over a fake business.
The film gives your school the opportunity to generate vital discussions with students about who they are talking to online and how they can keep themselves safe.
