ROBLOX - What you need to know.
At Thaxted Primary school, we understand the responsibility we have to educate our pupils on e-safety Issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom.
We believe that it is essential for parents/carers to be fully involved with promoting e-safety both in and outside of school and to be aware of their responsibilities. We hope this page will help parents/carers become aware of steps they can take to ensure their child/ren are safe when accessing the internet.
