Safer Internet Day
Tuesday 6 February marks Safer Internet Day 2018, with activities taking place across the UK to inspire a national conversation about protecting children online. The slogan for this year is: “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you." It's not too late to take part – the activities can be scheduled at any point in the year and there are a raft of resources which can be used to plan.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the aim of Safer Internet Day is to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children.
