Tuesday 7th February is Safer Internet Day. Celebrated globally and coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the campaign sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.
Each year has a different focus and for 2017, the theme is ‘Be the change: Unite for a better Internet. Schools, companies, police services, charities and other organisations across the UK are invited to get involved in the campaign to inspire the safe and positive use of technology.
Join us on Thursday 2nd February for a Free webinar
The SID campaign will create a huge buzz right across the UK and globally! There will be national youth events, activities in schools across the UK, media coverage, a day of trending on social media, companies will spread the word to customers and employees, as we all aim to reach as many children and families across the UK as possible.
The impact of the Safer Internet Day activities must also be reinforced with ongoing activities throughout the year. An ethos around online safety needs to pervade through the school all year round with initiatives to engage students and stakeholders on the safe use of technology. The schools that tick their e-safety box on Safer Internet Day and do nothing for the rest of the year are doing a great disservice to their pupils.
