Child Safe Standards and online learning

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has seen many schools shift their services and activities online.

It is essential that schools continue to keep the safety of children front of mind when adapting their services and activities. Legal obligations to comply with Ministerial Order 870 – Child Safe Standards and the Reportable Conduct Scheme continue through this time.

The Commission for Children and Young People has published information on the safeguards needed when shifting to technology facilitated learning, so that it can be used safely and in line with the Child Safe Standards.
