We would like to draw parents attention to ‘Roblox’ online social gaming platform. One of our parents has informed us this week that her child has been sent inappropriate images of a sexual nature whilst playing this online game. Having done a bit of research it seems that other parents in other parts of the country have been horried by similar incidents. What appears to be a family friendly game with more than 30 million active players has been used as a means to engage children in online conversations.
Please check www.hulldailymail.co.uk for further information. We advise parents to check their children’s online contacts. Further advice on security settings can be found on the school website or by visiting www.safetynet.org.uk or www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents
