Safer Internet Day 2018 will take place on Tuesday 6th February with the theme ‘Create, Connect and Share Respect: a better internet starts with you.’
Celebrated globally and coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the campaign sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.
As a result of this collective action Safer Internet Day 2017 reached 3 million children and 2 million parents across the UK.
Join the campaign to make Safer Internet Day 2018 the biggest yet!
Plans for 6th February
On the day, the campaign will create a huge buzz right across the UK and globally!
There will be national youth events, activities in schools across the UK, media coverage, a day of trending on social media, companies will spread the word to customers and employees, as we all aim to reach as many children and families across the UK as possible.
Here at Alfriston, we have decided to show our support for a positive Internet by wearing a ribbon in our hair that day, any colour will do. We will also be undertaking activities in school to explore our ideas of what a better Internet might look like and we urge all of our parents, friends and supporters to create, connect and share positive messages and use of technology. Also look out for a recent edition of Digital Parenting magazine coming home full of helpful advice and articles.
Together we can make a positive difference
As a result of hearing about Safer Internet Day 2017, an evaluation found that the majority of children spoke to their families about staying safe online while 79% felt more confident about what to do about any worries online. As a result of the day, 1 in 4 young people said they spoke up about something that had been worrying them online.
Together we can make #SID2018 the biggest campaign yet and make a real difference to the digital lives of children right across the UK.
