Safer Internet Day 2016 - 9 February 2016

Safer Internet Day 2016 will take place on 9 February with the theme Play your part for a better internet!

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.  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!

How to get involved:

1.    Focus on e-safety in assemblies or lessons using the resources in Safer Internet Day education packs

2.    Run a competition in school. How about running a poster competition for SID2016?

3.    Display the Safer Internet Day posters in your school (find these in the education packs)

4.    Get creative! Why not encourage pupils to produce an app, game or video?

5.    Get young people to take the lead. For example why not have an assembly         run by your pupils?

6.    Reach out to parents and carers using the Safer Internet Day parent pack, which includes a template letter, resources and a ready-to-use presentation.              Why  not invite parents/carers along to an assembly where they can hear directly from pupils.
