SAFER INTERNET DAY IS CELEBRATED GLOBALLY IN FEBRUARY EACH YEAR TO PROMOTE THE SAFE AND POSITIVE USE OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE AND INSPIRE A NATIONAL CONVERSATION.
The theme for this year’s campaign, which takes place on Tuesday 9 February, is ‘An internet we trust; exploring reliability in the online world’.
The campaign focuses on how we can know what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. It will explore how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.
The FA has published a range of useful resources on its ‘Safeguarding in the Digital World’ page, which can be viewed HERE
