We are proud supporters of Safer Internet Day 2021

Safer Internet Day 2021 is celebrated globally on 9th February with the slogan: "An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world"

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved and join a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

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 and help to create a better internet.

Each year for Safer Internet Day the UK Safer Internet Centre creates a range of resources to help educational settings and wider to celebrate the day. This includes:

  • Lessons plans, assemblies and films tailor made for all ages
  • Resources to support social media involvement on Safer Internet Day
  • Registration as a Safer Internet Day Supporter
  • National research looking at young people’s use of technology

As well talking with children how to be safe on line during this week, we also have online safety as a regular aspect of our Curriculum. At Southmere Primary Academy chidlren in each yaer group access the National curriculum expectations for Computing which include online safety.

Many of the aspects that we teach are informed from National Online Safety: National Online Safety | Keeping Children Safe Online in Education
