Safer Internet Day
SAFER INTERNET DAY 11 February 2020
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
The UK Safer Internet Centre – a partnership of three leading charities; Childnet, the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation – provide resources for children, schools and families, and tools for getting involved at saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.
Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.
As a result of our collective action Safer Internet Day 2016 reached 2.8 million children and 2.5 million parents!

February 11th 2020 is Safer Internet Day, a day that is very important to our school and pupils. Safer Internet Day is run by the INSAFE network and is celebrated every year across Europe, and in other countries worldwide.
This year’s theme is Free to be me: exploring identity online. Together for a better Internet. To celebrate the many positives of the Internet, and to raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, Northwick Park Primary and Nursery Academy will be running two assemblies for the whole school, both KS1 and Ks2. The assembly will provide practical advice and safety tips to help manage online safety issues, and discussions surrounding suitable behaviour online.
We believe that Internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development. Thank you for your support and we trust that you will check our website (www.northwickpark.essex.sch.uk) for more details and links that will help you keep your child safe online.
