Online safety at home - Support and resources for parents and carers
These activities are based on familiar lessons for the children delivered by School Community Police Officers in schools and are carefully designed to reinforce School Beat's most important key safeguarding Internet safety messages.
The National Crime Agency (NCA) have launched an #OnlineSafetyAtHome campaign to support parents and carers during the COVID-19 outbreak and the closure of schools.
With many children now having increased access to the internet, this campaign intends to provide families with support and resources to explore online safety issues with their children.
