Safer Internet Day 2016: Tuesday 9th February 2016 : Play your part for a better internet!
On Tuesday 9th February the Digital Leaders led a Safer Internet Day assembly. They presented a PowerPoint about this year's message " Play your part for a better internet"
The assembly was full of lots of useful information about how we can all help ourselves and others, to stay safe while using the internet.
Stay SMART, Stay SAFE
Tell an adult if you see something that makes you feel worried or unhappy
Our pupils often use the internet as part of their learning, and have regular lessons on e-safety to help them know how to keep safe online. We teach the children to use the internet carefully and understand what to do if they feel uncomfortable online.
Key messages for the Safer Internet Day 2016 campaign
Safer Internet Day 2016 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 9th February with the slogan ‘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 for children and young people.
Globally, Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, each February to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile devices, especially among children and young people. Celebrated on the second day of the second week of the second month, each year on Safer Internet Day thousands of people join together to participate in events and activities to raise awareness of online safety issues, right across the globe.
The online safety landscape has evolved over recent years from a focus on creating a ‘safer’ internet to creating a ‘better’ internet. Whether we are children and young people, parents and carers, educators or social care workers, or indeed industry, decision makers or politicians, we all have a role to play.
In championing a better internet, the theme aims to encourage people to play their part in making the most of the positive opportunities offered online, while giving them the resilience, skills, knowledge and support they need to navigate any online risks they may come across.
