School closures: secondary schools

Secondary school students are able to access the secondary platform at home. We encourage them to make full use of the additional features of the platform, particularly the Community and newsletter, to keep in contact with other Digital Leaders and keep abreast of developments on the programme.

We think this is a perfect time for Digital Leaders not in school to demonstrate the peer-led aspect of the programme and encourage them to use their learning by teaching their families how to stay safe online at home.

We will continue to review the situation and explore different options, in order to keep our secondary school cohort as engaged as possible.

We will be extending all schools’ subscription end dates to allow for the school closures.

Childnet have lots of useful resources and tools that parents or carers can use to help ensure their children of all ages are safe and happy online. For fun activities and advice, please view the blog post.
