Ensure the children are getting screen breaks as well as keeping up with school lessons/work set by their class teachers.

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.

Creating a Family Agreement

A family agreement is a great way to start a conversation with your whole family about how you all use the internet, and to start discussions together around how to behave in a positive way when online, whether this is at home, at school or at a friend’s.

Speaking to someone

For young people – depending on the age of your child there are a range of places they can go to for help. For younger children they can call Childline for help and support.

For parents and carers – The O2 and NSPCC helpline can help you with any questions or concerns you may have about keeping your child safe online. They can provide you with advice and help to troubleshoot any problems your family may be facing.
