Safer Internet Day
This year's theme is ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’.Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, 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.
This year on Safer Internet Day the UK Safer Internet Centre invited everyone to play their part in making the Internet a better place.
Celebrated globally and coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the safe, responsible and positive use of technology, and to pledge how you will help to create a kinder and better online community.
Tuesday, 11 February 2020 marked the 17th edition of Safer Internet Day (SID). Under a campaign slogan of “Together for a better internet”, the annual global celebration of Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of both a safer and a better internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. It aims to reach out to children and young people, parents and carers, teachers, educators and social workers, as well as industry, decision makers and politicians, to encourage everyone to play their part in creating a better internet.
Safer Internet Day 2019 was celebrated globally with the theme: Together for a better internet.
This Safer Internet Day was bigger than ever! With more than 2,100 organisations and schools across the UK getting involved to help inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.
In school some children from all year groups took part in an enrichment day focusing on how to stay safe online and when using different technology. We ended the day with an informative assembly by KS1 children including a video made during the day.
