Safer Internet Day - Tuesday 7 February 2017

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. Next year it will take place on Tuesday 7 February with the theme 'Be the change: unite for a better internet'.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations getting involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

The UK Safer Internet Centre – a partnership of three leading charities; Childnet, the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation – provide resources for children, schools and families, and tools for getting involved at www.saferinternetday.org.uk.

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!

In Bradford the Curriculum Innovation Service offers a wealth of support in the field of Internet Safety and can aid your school in a variety ways -  either on the day itself, during Internet Safety week or throughout the year.  We can deliver bespoke sessions to pupils, staff, governors and parents as necessary, including leadership and management, policy and practice and developing/delivering an effective (e)Safeguarding curriculum.
