Urgent Online Safety Update from John and John
"Warning Regarding Children Playing ROBLOX and broadcasting live on TIKTOK.
We are sending this message out in the hope that parents will be able to check their children's use of ROBLOX and TIKTOK, to make sure they aren't being exploited.
Over the past week it has become a significant trend for Childrento use TIK TOK Live to broadcast via Live Stream, to numerous strangers.
Children are posting videos on TIKTOK and then promise to golive if they can hit the required 1000 followers on TIKTOK. Once they go 'Live', they can then connect in real time with everyone.
Many children are now Live Streaming themselves playing themassively popular game 'Adopt Me' in ROBLOX. They are usingtheir Live Stream to shout out for followers to play with them on ROBLOX, in particular on 'Adopt Me'"
More information can be found on their Facebook page here:
If you would like more help from 'The 2 Johns', there is a free meeting you can get involved in. I will post more details about this, in the March Computing Newsletter.
Thank you 🎮

E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We also want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
As a parent, you'll know how important the internet is to children - they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. It's a highly creative place of amazing opportunities. But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online - such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
You can download a simple checklist below that may help you start to protect your children online and decrease the risks they face. Or you can engage with your children regarding their use of the internet while at home.
Here are some conversation starter ideas from www.childnet.com
- Ask your children to tell you about the sites they like to visit and what they enjoy doing online.
- Ask them about how they stay safe online. What tips do they have for you, and where did they learn them? What is OK and not OK to share?
- Ask them if they know where to go for help, where to find the safety advice, privacy settings and how to report or block on the services they use.
- Encourage them to help. Perhaps they can show you how to do something better online or they might have a friend who would benefit from their help and support.
- Think about how you use the internet as a family. What could you do to get more out of the internet together and further enjoy your lives online
To try and help parents with the fast moving and changing world of internet and social media we've suggested a few internet on the tab below. They contain information on different types of social media and how to help keep children safe.
