    Hi Fiona,

    The email address that you used to create your child's Xbox Live account should be the same as the email address that you will use to log in on Windows 10. Once you are logged in to the same email address, it will show the same Xbox Profile, gamerscore and
    achievements.

    To better assist you with your concern, please clarify the following information:

    • Is there an email address attached to your child's account on the Xbox 360?
    • Did you create a new Microsoft Account or email address for the Child account online?

    If the child account on Xbox 360 is not attached to an email address, follow the steps on this

    link
    to connect an offline profile to a Microsoft Account and join Xbox Live.

    If it is already connected to an email address in your Xbox 360, you can go to this

    link
    and follow the steps to change the email.

    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested solutions above.
