Support for Parents during Covid-19 Crisis

Resources for Parents

We have collated a number of activities under the themes of Heart, Body and Mind to keep your children engaged and things the family can do together. 

It is important to engage with our children every day in a positive way.  

You will find our Wellbeing for Parents section via the link below (Heart, Body and Mind) providing parents with tips on how to check in and be kind to themselves.

Online safety videos

We normally deliver workshops about online safety in schools for children, teachers and parents and this is supported by Due to the Coronavirus, we can’t have our face-to-face workshops in schools at present and instead we have number of short videos about online safety for parents that we hope will help their children stay safe and happy online. You can watch these videos on their own, or you can watch them as a mini-presentation.
