Be safe this Easter

The Easter holidays are just around the corner, and parents are gearing up to keep their children safe while they enjoy a hard-earned break from school.

As parents, we know that safety is your top priority. That’s why we are here to offer some valuable tips to ensure your children have a secure and enjoyable first-term school holiday.

Firstly, communication is key!

Open communication with your children is one of the most important things you can do to keep them safe. Talk to them about security concerns and teach them to identify potentially dangerous situations. Encourage them to speak up if they feel uncomfortable or scared in any situation.

We’re here for you this Easter holiday, and we encourage you to reach out via our call centre or your panic buttons if you or your kids encounter anyone who has acted in a way that makes your children feel unsafe in any way.

Online safety is more important than ever in 2023. With more time on their hands, children may be spending more time online during the break, and parents should ensure that they monitor which websites and social media platforms their children are using.

Teach your children about the potential dangers of sharing personal information and interacting with strangers online. A good rule of thumb is that, if your kids are on these platforms, they should only be using them to chat with people they know in real life, like friends and family, and never with strangers.

It is also importance to have up-to-date identification information for your children. If a child become separated from their parents, having a recent photo and detailed information about the child can help authorities locate, and reunite the child with their family.

Finally, parents should ensure that their homes are secure and that their children are aware of basic safety measures. This includes locking doors and windows, keeping valuable items out of sight, and ensuring that children are aware of emergency procedures, such as how to contact emergency services and what to do in the event of a fire or other emergency.
