Safer Internet Day 2021 

Today, we’ve come together as a Trust, in support of Safer Internet Day – an annual campaign which aims to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology, especially among children and young people.

 

This year, as the global pandemic has led to an increased use of technology, we want to work towards the creation of both a safer and better internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

 

In the creation of a safer internet, everyone has a part to play. Here’s what you could do:

  • Children and young people can help to create a better internet by being kind and respectful to others online, by protecting their online reputations (and those of others), and by seeking out positive opportunities to create, engage and share online.
  • Parents and carers play a crucial role in empowering and supporting children to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively, whether it is by ensuring an open dialogue with their children, educating them to use technology safely and positively, or by acting as digital role models.
  • We can help to create a better internet by equipping pupils with digital literacy skills and by developing their critical thinking skills, which will allow them to better navigate the online world.

 

During the day we will be using our communication channels to reach pupils, parents and carers with some tips, advice and support. Find out more at www.saferinternetday.org.
