Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year in over a hundred countries
to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people
and inspire a national conversation. 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 for children and young people.
Safer Internet Day is a fantastic opportunity to reflect as a family about how you
can use the internet and technology safely, responsibly and positively. Whether
you are a parent, grandparent, foster carer, aunt, uncle or older sibling – we can
all play a role in empowering children to enjoy their time online!
SID 2019 Information for Parents
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.
