Keeping children safe online when they are using technology remains a high priority for all of us. Please be assured that when we have suggested online platforms to support your child with home learning tasks, we have fully considered your child’s safety . If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, the links below have some excellent advice and guidance for parents about how to ensure your child’s safety.
We recognise that this is an anxious time for families and for children. Children may have some questions about Coronavirus. The illustrator of “The Gruffalo” has worked with some medics to produce a book for children that you could read together that may help with supporting their questions.
Additionally, Coram Education who work closely with schools through their work with PSHCE curriculum have some resources for parents that can support these anxious times and questions including the use of Harold, a character that will be well known to most of them from teaching in school and his daily diary. The link for this website can be found here. https://www.coramlifeeducation.org.uk/here-for-parents
As always should you have any concerns , or questions, please do contact us via the school office via firstname.lastname@example.org / 01594 842789 or please contact the class teacher via email or the on-line platform.
Best wishes for you and your families.
We will look forward to seeing you all again soon .
