This coincide with the run up to Safer Internet day #SID2017 ran by UK Safer Internet Centre.

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.

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.

This year theme is:

Be the change: unite for a better internet

Schools can register as a supporter and there are a range of education packs to support schools.

It would be great to hear what your school is planning to do for #SID2017
