Safer Internet Day - 11th February 2014
Safer Internet Day 2014 will take place on 11th February 2014 and will be the eleventh edition of the event.
The theme is 'Let’s create a better internet together’'. This
theme highlights the responsibility that all users have in making the internet
a better place - whether children and young people, parents and carers,
educators and social care workers, or industry, decision makers and
Safer Internet Day (SID) is a great opportunity to raise awareness in schools about e-safety issues. The UK Safer Internet Centre runs this event annually with lots of suggestions , resources and ideas available online to support schools. See: www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2014
