Online Safety

With the help of the leading privacy law firm Schillings, The Children’s Commissioner has produced a digital safety and wellbeing kit for parents and a safety guide for children to help ensure they are safe, and their wellbeing is looked after while at home during the coronavirus outbreak when their screen time maybe higher than usual (although it also applies at any other time!)

The digital safety and wellbeing kit provides useful tips and guidance to help protect your child on a range of issues including video calling, how to ensure your device and web browser are set up and updated correctly and tips regarding best practice with your username and passwords.

The kit also contains updated guidance around their digital 5 a day guide which looks at how to balance your child’s screen time and improve their wellbeing.
