A free online safety guide on Remote Education for parents and carers.

Remote education ensures continuous learning outside the classroom. For parents and carers, remote education isn’t always straightforward and there can be a number of factors they need to consider, especially around ensuring their children feel comfortable and are familiar with the whole concept. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help parents and carers support their child in getting the most out of their remote education experience.“(NOS)

In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential issues such as creating a safe learning environment, adhering to school policies and making sure the appropriate systems and communication channels are in place so that educators, parents and carers get the most out of their remote education experience.

The children’s guide offers children tips about the language to use, the video sessions, keeping personal information safe, how and where to communicate safely and adds a little about mental health and wellbeing. It is a useful document to go over with children either as a parent, carer or teacher.

There is far more on this National Online Safety site than mentioned and it is free to sign up as a parent or teacher to the basic level. That does not give access to the courses etc but still allows subscribers to access lots of very useful information.
