Coronavirus (COVID-19): support for parents and carers to keep children safe online

The DfE has updated its guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. The measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19), although essential, have disrupted people’s day-to-day lives.

As a result of these necessary measures, almost all of us are likely to be spending more time online, including children. This guidance contains resources for parents and carers to help keep their children safe online.

What can parents do to ensure their children are safe online:

Talk with children about online risks

Stay involved in their digital world

Know who they’re connecting with online

Use privacy and security settings

Block and report people who make them feel uncomfortable

Stay safe at home. Stay safe online

You could also share these videos with your children:
