There has been considerable media, political and public concern about the safety of children and young people (CYP) during the lockdown. This concern has been caused primarily by the fact that CYP have spent more time at home with their parents and schools have been closed to most CYP. In this talk, though, I question whether and how children have been more at risk at home, and also the extent to which teachers and other school staff do, and can, protect them from child abuse and neglect.Dr. Bernard Gallagher @UKRCPR
