Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day, coordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre, is an annual celebration aiming to raise awareness of emerging online issues and concerns amongst young people, from cyberbullying to social networking to digital identity. This year, Safer Internet Day will be on the 9th February 2021 and will be celebrated in the UK with the theme: 

An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world

The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction? In school and through their Home Learning, the children will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities which explore this theme. There are also Safer Internet Day assemblies available on the assemblies page of the website.

  • Safer Internet Day - BBC Live Lesson
    In this 30-minute Live Lesson in partnership with the UK Safer Internet Centre, aimed at primary-aged students and linked to the primary computing curriculum, we learn about how we can stay safe, responsible and wise in an increasingly digital world, with tips and advice from some of the biggest personalities on the web. The lesson will be made available right here on the morning of 9th February 2021 for your class to view in school or at home, and we'll be running a live commentary page alongside the school day to showcase how you and your pupils are marking Safer Internet Day.
