Learning about online safety at home

Schools across the UK are now closed to most families. We know this is a difficult time for most parents. This page is intended to provide you with support and resources to help you learn about online safety at home with your child. 

Parents and Carers Resources

If you haven’t already, the first thing to do is read our Parents and Carers Helpsheets - there is one for primary and one for secondary. These contain key online safety advice and links to our resources, as well as support services.

We have also created short videos to help you with online safety at home. We will release a new one every fortnight.

Responding to our parents and carers survey

At the start of the lockdown we launched a survey for parents and carers to help us to understand the issues you are facing and how we can support you. We have had over 300 responses so far, thank you if you have participated.

You can read our response to the survey here.
