Online Safety during Covid-19 School Closure
As schools close, or run at a limited capacity as a result of COVID-19, we know that parents and carers are having to manage their child’s use of technology and help them learn remotely. This can feel overwhelming, but we are here to help!
Here are lots of useful resources and tools that you as a parent or carer can use to help ensure your child is safe and happy online.
Here is a link to a recent document from the Government, about ensuring that we all play a part in keeping children safe online. There are resources and links to websites which can support you in recognising the potential risks along with advice if you feel concerned about content the children are accessing.
