Staying safe online

Online safety and coronavirus

Children and young people’s lives have changed dramatically because of the coronavirus. With social distancing measures and most schools closing, children will be spending more time at home and online.

And while the internet is a great way for children and young people to stay in touch with their friends and keep busy during lockdown, it can also bring risks. Now more than ever it’s important to talk to your child about staying safe online and about the apps and sites they’re using. We’ve got advice to help. 

Our safeguarding governor, Rebecca Ellis, works for Devon and Cornwall police in this field and has produced a power point (see below) for parents and carers that provides a wealth of information and resources.
