During periods of National Lockdown and where remote learning is taking place, children are more likely to access online resources and websites. It is essential that children are kept safe, understand how to behave online and know what to do if they find themselves in a situation that makes them feel uncomfortable.
The following links will take you to websites designed to give guidance to help parents to keep children safe online at home.
The DSL and DDSLs can also provide support, advice and/or signposting in relation to any online safety concerns including any allegations of cyber-bullying.
