Free Online Safety Videos

These free online safety videos have been created to assist schools during the Covid-19 lockdown period. They are short and simple to give students support, advice and guidance on a range of subjects.

All the online safety videos are free for all schools/colleges to use as you wish.

Please note:

All these online safety videos have been created and edited by me during the Covid-19 lockdown period. There is nothing fancy about them, they are all less than 10 minutes in length and are simply talking-head or screencasts.

The videos are created for schools, colleges and parents to use. You are welcome to download and use as you wish. If you embed on your school/college website, all I ask is that you provide a link back to this page to acknowledge the source.

All the online safety videos are hosted on a Vimeo Pro account, not YouTube.

If you would like to know when new videos/resources are created you can subscribe to my mailing list at the bottom of this page.

All the videos have english subtitles. Click on the ‘CC’ at the bottom right of the video to view the subtitles.
