Advice for families in self-isolation

You may be wondering about how to keep your children occupied, as well as helping them learn during school closure. For help and advice, read the article from the BBC on families self-isolating together www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51936286

Stay in touch with your family and friends. It is likely that grandparents are really missing their grandchildren and vice versa. A video chat will ensure that families and friends still get to see each other as much as possible, not just to offer reassurances, but also to share some laughter and smiles together. There are many apps that provide multiple persons link-up opportunities (EG Zoom, House Party, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype), consider joining an online community ‘get-together’; have a virtual coffee morning or family quiz night!


As the Internet becomes ever more accessible, it is important to remember about using the Internet safely. The term e-safety is used to cover this area. 

Good practices include, keeping your username and password safe and not sharing it with others, as well as, to tell a trusted adult if someone or something has made you uncomfortable or worried whilst on the Internet.
