Live video sessions for parents: keeping your children safe

This year we ran not one but three online safety sessions for parents so schools didn’t have to. They were all dropins on Facebook Live and you can watch them again on our Facebook feed or below. Each one had special guests and looked at topics from parental control settings to child sexual exploitation, radicalisation, bullying and youth violence and gangs. Watch again below and check out all the links to the resources we talked about. ⤵

Children spent much more time on devices in 2020 – for schoolwork, online tutoring or during leisure time – so take the opportunity to provide parents with top tips and advice.
