It is recognised that children are talking a lot about the Coronavirus and some are quite scared. Please be aware that children pick up on the news and some have access to social media, so please be mindful of what they are hearing and seeing. Give them some reassurance and a cuddle as it is such an unknown scenario for them and us. Below is a social story that is used to help reassure them, please share it with your children if needed.
Please also note that during this time, your children may have greater access to the internet and internet safety is very important. For further information about keeping your children safe online – Please click here
