With the support of Kayleigh’s family, Leicestershire Police has made a film about aspects of the last two weeks of her life.
Kayleigh’s Love Story is as a warning to young people, both girls and boys, about the dangers of speaking to people they don’t know online. The film highlights just how quick and easy it can be for children to be groomed online without them or those around them knowing it is happening. Its purpose is to protect children now and in the future and to stop another family losing a child in this way.
The British Board of Film Classification has advised that the film would carry a 15 certificate if it was to be shown as an advert in the cinema. This is because your child would have no prior knowledge of the adverts they would see. As you and your child are aware of the screenings in advance, the film has been deemed suitable for children aged 11 and over.
Manor High School intend to show your child this film at school in the coming weeks. Specialist Police officers will be on hand to discuss any questions raised by the film and we’re running a dedicated classroom session to provide children with advice about online safety and CSE.
To allow you the opportunity to see the film in advance of it being shown, we are holding screenings for parents only at 4pm, 4.30pm and 5pm on Thursday 6th October at Manor High School. After each showing there will be the chance for discussion.
Places are limited at each session. These showings are for parents/carers of Year 7, 8 and 9 students only.
