E-safety information for parents
Whilst there are huge benefits to being online in order to stay connected to family and friends during the coronavirus pandemic, the government recognises many parents may feel concerned about the activities and content their children are accessing. This guidance outlines resources to help keep children safe from different risks online and where to go to receive support and advice.
