We have been passed a letter written to parents of another school warning them of an online game called ROBLOX that has become increasingly popular amongst children. if fact it is reportedly the most popular online game played by 5 to 10 year olds. The game allows children to interact online with strangers and children and parents have reported inappropriate content.
Please check to see if you child has access to ROBLOX in the first instance and secondly check the contacts on their inbox as they may also be receiving messages from strangers.
The school who has highlighted the problem reported that 70% of their year 2 played the game.
There are several articles on line covering concerns and also providing advice.
Today all of our year 6 attended a E-Safety morning where they were discussing the dangers of the online world but it must also be the responsibility of parents and carers to be aware and in indeed vigilant.
