During the closure of schools, it is inevitable that students will be spending more time online during lessons and in their free time on the internet and social media. This represents an even greater level of risk for young people.
British Council Partner Schools has developed three e-safety brochures to support schools, parents, carers and children to keep young people safe in the online world. These resources can be found here:
- Digital Life Hacks for Kids – tips for young people to stay safe
- Digital Life Hacks for Parents and Carers – a family-based approach to online safety
- Online Safety Resource for Schools – how schools can develop an inclusive and effective e-safety policy
Many partner schools are already making the children's and parents' versions of the brochures available online during the school closures to support families at home with online safety.
