Dear Watch Member,

The national Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) team have told us that their third #OnlineSafetyAtHome pack is now available with new activities for parents and carers to use at home.

To support parents during COVID-19 and the closure of schools, CEOP we will be releasing new home activity packs each fortnight with simple, age appropriate, 15 minute activities you can do with your child to support their online safety at a time when they will spending more time online at home. 

The activity packs can be accessed here:

Professionals and parents and carers have reported that children are using video-chatting apps and sites to access learning and keep in touch with friends and family. 

Two new Parent Information articles look at some of the things parents and carers should think about to ensure their child’s experience of video chat is safe and fun:

Video chatting: a guide for parents and carers of primary school-age children

Video chatting: a guide for parents and carers of secondary school-age children
