USEFUL WEBSITE INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN


Dear All

The NSPCC has created Covid 19 - Parents' page, an online Hub providing advice and support for parents and carers during the  coronavirus outbreak.  Content includes: information on keeping children safe from abuse; tips and advice to help parents working from home and ways to talk to a child who is anxious or worried about coronavirus.  Please share with your networks, family and friends.

The Under 12s Childline website (www.childline.org.uk/kids) has a new page to help primary age children make sense of the Covid-19 situation, with information and advice as well as tips for managing our feelings.  There are also some lovely games and activities to help children manage their worries.
