Online Safety Advice during Lockdown

Thinkuknow Activity Packs for Online Safety

Learning about online safety at home

Schools across the UK are now closed to most families. We know this is a difficult time for most parents. This page is intended to provide you with support and resources to help you learn about online safety at home with your child.

Parents and Carers Resources

If you haven’t already, the first thing to do is read our Parents and Carers Helpsheets – there is one for primary and one for secondary. These contain key online safety advice and links to our resources, as well as support services.

We have also created short videos to help you with online safety at home. We will release a new one every fortnight.

Home activity packs

Once you have read the Helpsheets, click on the links below to download your first home activity packs for each age range.

Each pack contains two 15 minute activities to do with your child, using Thinkuknow resources. The next two will be released in a fortnight’s time.

Ages 11 – 13
