Safer Internet Day 2021
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The campaign focuses on knowing what to trust online and supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, and can help us see the world from different points of view. But how do we separate fact from fiction, the genuine from the misleading? How do we decide what to believe online, and what’s the impact of dealing with fake content and experiences online? Join us this Safer Internet Day in helping to create an internet we can trust.
Look at the resources below to find guidance, support and activities to do at home.
Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day offers many opportunities to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore
the role we all play in helping to create better and safer online communities.
In celebrating this event within school we aim to provide opportunities to discuss online safety with children and young people. To provide information and support for parents and carers and promote safer internet use within our community.
During the week children will take part in assemblies and a selection of activities to educate and encourage using the internet safely. We will focus on making choices when online and encourage conversation between children and adults. Older children will look at their identity. It’s important that everyone has the right, and confidence, to be themselves and express themselves offline and online.
Class pages will be updated during the week.
Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Tips for staying safe online:
· Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
· Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
