Thought-provoking resources to promote informed discussions about staying safe online

Safer Internet Day (SID) is the perfect time to talk to your class about both the benefits and dangers of using the internet.

To help to get students thinking about how to look after themselves online, we’ve brought together a selection of lesson ideas, activities and discussion starters that consider appropriate behaviour and ways to deal with negative experiences.

Resources for young learners

Kick-start a lesson on internet safety with these extensive resource packs for 5-7 year olds and 7-11 year olds, containing a range of activities created specifically to help learners discuss the idea of uniting for a better internet. 

Address the need to stay safe online with the practical tips outlined in these web-safety posters, which can be coloured in and displayed around the classroom. Alternatively, these comprehensive lesson ideas, including thought-provoking activities, worksheets and advice on how to talk to your class about online safety, are ideal for highlighting potential risks.

Use these discussion starters to help learners hone their communication skills, while developing independent ideas on the role of the internet. For a different approach, this detailed lesson makes use of films, such as Harriet the Spy and The Thief Lord, to explore privacy online.
