Safe to Learn during COVID-19: Recommendations to Prevent and Respond to Violence against Children in All Learning Environments


Safe to Learn partners have released a set of recommendations for governments to help prevent and respond to violence against children in different learning environments during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Governments should enable a comprehensive cross-sector response to prevent and respond to violence in and through distance-learning environments.
  • Governments should take responsibility for ensuring children are “safe to learn at home” – whatever home may look like – and implement plans now to address the short- and long-term impacts the epidemic will have on education systems and student safety.
  • Governments should plan for the reopening of schools with student safety in mind.
