Keeping all children safe while learning at home

 

 When children are working on computers, mobile phones and other electrical devices to complete work during the school closures or for homework tasks please make sure that their online interactions are closely monitored. Where possible ensure that they are only accessing the internet while you are in the same room as them to stop any potential safeguarding issues from taking place. The links below give further guidance about keeping your children safe online both when they are completing work for school and during their leisure time.
