Safer Internet Day

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!


What is happening in our school?


To celebrate the many positives of the internet, and to raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, Yardley Primary School will be joining Safer Internet Day 2019 by carrying out a range of activities in school.  We will also take part in the ‘Our Internet Our Choice’ campaign where we will think about and share the ways in which we ask, give and receive consent online!


During this week, we will also be emailing home an electronic version of the latest issue of the Digital Parenting magazine.  This magazine provides parents and carers with the latest useful information and advice regarding online safety.  To make sure you receive it, make sure we have your email address in school.
