Very much looking forward to getting to know you all virtually. 

Online safety for children and young people

The use of technology and the internet can be an incredible force for good, especially during this time when it is harder to be connected to our friends and family. Used correctly there is no reason to be fearful in technology itself, however it is important to be aware of risks, especially for children and young people.

There are several sources of advice and support for students and for parents/carers.  These include:

You and your sons or daughters can also access:

COVID Symptom Tracker App

Help slow the spread of COVID-19 by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well.

Join millions of people supporting scientists at King’s College London to help our health services by identifying:

  • How fast the virus is spreading in your area
  • High-risk areas in the UK
  • Who is most at risk, by better understanding symptoms linked to underlying health conditions

You will contribute to advance research on COVID-19 in partnership with leading scientific institutions like King’s College London and TwinsUK, one of the most clinically detailed studies in the world.

This app allows you to help others, but does not give health advice. If you need health advice please visit the NHS website at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

This app is designed by doctors and scientists at King’s College London, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals and Zoe Global Limited, a health technology company.

If you would like to help out in this difficult time, then you can. Download the app and share daily your own status, even if you are well. With your help we can understand much better the situation up and down the country, how the disease presents itself to different people, and how it progresses.

This is a new virus which the UK has never seen before. There are a wide range of symptoms, which differ between people. With your help we can understand better how the disease presents itself depending upon individual factors such as health and age.

No information you share will be used for commercial purposes.

There are two parts to the app:

HEALTH INFORMATION
You will be asked to share some general information, such as your age and some health information, such as whether you have certain diseases.

SYMPTOM TRACKING
We will ask you every day to let us know how you feel, so you can share your symptoms. We will also ask whether you have visited the hospital, what treatment you received there, and whether you have been tested for COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
