Safer Internet Day on Tues, Feb 6th

5th February 2018

On Tuesday 6th February 2018, our school will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2018. The slogan this year is “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you” and throughout the week we will have a whole school assembly and individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children about how to stay safe online. The Day is part of a nationwide event to make children aware.

What is Safer Internet Day?

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Get involved to play your part!
