IMPORTANT NOTICE

Roblox
We have been aware that another child at our school has been targeted online by an unknown person asking inappropriate questions on Roblox. This is a dangerous game as it links to many unsuitable sites and is easily infiltrated by people who wish to gain access to innocent children. The incident this week was reported to CEOPS who confirm that these kinds of issues on Roblox are very common, so we advise the website is best avoided for younger children, or at least used with a high level of supervision.
If you haven’t done so already, please set up parental controls on all your children’s devices. There is lots of useful information on the CEOPS website, which can also be accessed via our school website. There are specific sections for the younger age groups and how to keep them safe online.
