Safer Internet Day


Safer Internet Day 2013 takes place on Tuesday 5 February. The theme this year is to encourage pupils to consider what their online rights and responsibilities are.

Safer Internet Day is supported by Childnet International, a UK-based charity working domestically and internationally to help make the internet a safer place for children and young people and to help them use interactive technologies responsibly.

Take a look at our Safer Internet Day collection of resources – shared by both Childnet and TES’ own contributors – to help you explore e-safety in the classroom.
