Online Safety

The world is changing and the digital age is here to stay! As your child grows up they will be using all kinds of digital platforms, from social media, discussion forums to online shopping.
They will be exposed to all kinds of media and information at the click of a button.
We need to be mindful of our approach to online safety and not just treat it as a side issue, your children need to be taught about their safety online just like they are taught about crossing the road safely. 
We have put together some useful websites and information below which will help you address the issues facing our children.

Roblox: How to Protect Children from Harmful Content

 

We have received several reports from parents and school staff recently about harmful content on Roblox including worrying accounts of young children being sent 'friend requests' from strangers and in-game characters imitating sex. Our Online Safety partners  have conducted further research and created the  Roblox Parents Guide to help you understand how to keep children and young people safe on Roblox.
