Many families will be encouraging their children to make good use of technology throughout the current lockdown with no opportunities to see their classmates in person. Technology can help us all stay in touch safely but parents and carers will want to make sure that their children are as safe as possible.
At Broadwood, E-Safety is taken very seriously and children are constantly reminded about the importance of keeping safe online. Please take the time to look at some of these activities and websites with your child to remind them how to keep safe and familiarise yourself with how to keep your child safe online.

The list of apps and websites children are using grows by the minute so printed advice is likely to be out of date.  In the UK, the NSPCC have a site called Net-Aware https://www.net-aware.org.uk/ with a dedicated section on online safety in lockdown https://www.net-aware.org.uk/online-safety-lockdown/ 

Parentzone have some excellent articles about navigating home learning and keeping children safe online during the current lockdown.
