The Safer Internet Day "Have your Say Survey"

Posted on 27 September 2012

We have launched the Safer Internet Day Have your Say survey, which asks children and young people from the UK to consider what they believe will make the internet a better place, also giving them the chance to reflect on their own online responsibilities, considering how the way they act online can affect their own and other people's online experiences. We will present the collated views and opinions of children and young people across the UK to the government on Safer Internet Day.

Launch of Safer Internet Day school packs

Posted on 25 November 2011

We are happy to be able to share with you the launch of the UK Safer Internet Centre resource packs for both Primary and Secondary schools. This year's theme aims to encourage pupils to think about their internet use, and the way that other age groups user the internet, and internet-enabled devices. Pupils will need to consider the ways in which different generations can teach each other about the internet, and share their experiences with one another, to promote discussion and understanding across the age groups. Pupils will be inspired to discuss their experiences with their families, therefore facilitating opportunities for safety advice to be shared in a constructive way.
