Safer Internet Day 2021

Information for parents/carers

Safer Internet Day 2021 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 9th February 2021 with the slogan “Creating an internet we trust”, the day provides a fantastic opportunity to engage with children about their digital lives. 

To help you talk to your children about having a positive and safe time online, the Safer Internet Centre have created a pack for parents and carers, including conversation starters, an online safety plan, family activities and more!

They have also produced a short film for parents and carers to accompany this pack and serve as a conversation starter. 

Conversation starters:

Safer Internet Day is a fantastic opportunity to have a conversation with children about using the internet safely, responsibly and positively. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, foster carer, aunt, uncle or older sibling – we can all play a role in empowering children to enjoy their time online safely.
