Keith Hunter said “The lockdown has placed many pressures upon society. One area we can’t afford to overlook is the impact that this situation is inevitably having on our children. From the absent routine of going to school, structured learning and support from teachers, to accessing healthy school meals and seeing their friends – all are being felt by children across the country. Those who have access will also be spending an increased time on mobile phones, devices and gaming portals.
“This increased online activity comes with an increased risk for young people. To mitigate this I am reaching out to all parents to alert them to these dangers and highlight the unique package of home education support available to them. Education is power and prevention is key”.
