This is a highly vulnerable time for children and families if the safe space of school is no longer there. Neglect/ Physical, Sexual and Emotional abuse/ Domestic Abuse (incl. coercive control)/ Mental Health issues (parents and children)/ Online danger (incl. gaming, gambling, radicatisation)/ Substance misuse and parental conflict are all likely to rise. Don’t forget any Young Carers and the extra pressure on them at this time. The longer the crisis lasts the more vulnerable these children will be out of school.
