Resources around talking to children about Coronavirus

NSPCC Learning (which is primarily aimed at people who work with children) has updated  “How to have difficult conversations with children” content to include references to Coronavirus: https://learning.nspcc.org.uk/safeguarding-child-protection/how-to-have-difficult-conversations-with-children/


One of the things highlighted in this content is Childline’s new page on the virus, which has lots of helpful information for children: https://www.childline.org.uk/info-advice/your-feelings/anxiety-stress-panic/worries-about-the-world/coronavirus/


There is also a page on the main NSPCC website (which is aimed principally at parents) around talking about difficult topics. It doesn’t reference Coronavirus specifically (yet), but still has lots of helpful advice: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/support-for-parents/talking-about-difficult-topics/


You might also be interested in the news story we’ve published on NSPCC Learning about undertaking remote teaching safely. I imagine you may be getting some enquiries about that too: https://learning.nspcc.org.uk/news/2020/march/undertaking-remote-teaching-safely/


If you haven’t already, I would also recommend signing up to CASPAR, which provides a weekly update of all the new content we are putting out, as well as flagging useful resources from other organisations: https://learning.nspcc.org.uk/newsletter/caspar/
