13 Reasons Why

I am writing to inform you of a series available on Netflix which you may feel unsuitable viewing for your child.

Many teenagers up and down the country have watched (or are watching) a Netflix series called 13 Reasons Why. I know that significant numbers of our students – in all year groups – have also watched it, at their friends’ houses if not at home.

It is classified as an 18 and has content warnings depending on what happens in each episode. It has lots of pertinent lessons on consent and the sharing of images of each other. There are many positive aspects to the series and many good examples of respect for each other, the value of friendship and tolerance.

It is very thought provoking for parents and there is a half hour documentary at the end that explains the thought that went into the filming of the most upsetting scenes which may be worth watching.
