Safer Internet Day 2021 – Together for a better internet

 

On Tuesday, 9 February 2021, we will celebrate the 18th edition of Safer Internet Day. With a theme once again of "An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world", the day calls upon all stakeholders to join together to make the internet a safer and better place for all, and especially for children and young people.

 

Safer Internet Day is an annual opportunity for schools and families to think about how we can make the online world a positive place for children of all ages.

 

Many of our pupils enjoy using the internet at or away from the home, with nearly half of Young People (8-17 years old) saying that what they see or do online contributes to overall identity. 

 

The internet is an amazing resource that we need to work hard together to make as safe yet free as possible.
