Safer Internet Day


Safer Internet Day 2015 takes place on 10 February. The theme this year is “Let’s create a better internet together”.

Safer Internet Day in the UK is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre; made up of Childnet International, the Internet Watch Foundation and the South West Grid for Learning. The UK Safer Internet Centre works domestically and internationally to help make the internet a safer place for children and young people and to help them use interactive technologies responsibly. They also provide information and practical advice for parents/carers and professionals who work with children.

Take a look at our Safer Internet Day collection of resources to help you explore e-safety in the classroom.
