Safe use of Xbox online
27 January 2017

We would like to make you aware of a potential risk related to on-line gaming on X-Box.

Three Year 6 children in a local school have reported being contacted by ‘Jake’ while playing ‘Roblox’. ‘Jake’, who has described himself as being in Year 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 has, on several occasions, asked the pupils to meet him in ‘the park’ (he did not specify which one) to play Pokemon or to join an online ‘Pizza Club’.

The three pupils reported that he sounded older than any of the ages given. Sensibly, none of them took up the offer to meet ‘Jake’ and reported the incident to their class teacher.

Please talk with your child about their on-line gaming (if appropriate) to find out if they have had any similar experiences and take suitable steps to ensure their safety at home.
