Half-Term Safer Internet Day resources for families from The Education People
2 February 2024
Free #SaferInternetDay Challenge for schools to share with families in advance of half-term.
Safer Internet Day 2024 will take place on Tuesday 6 February 2024, with celebrations and learning based around the theme 'Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online'. Safer Internet Day is the UK's biggest celebration of online safety.
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 to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively.
Co-ordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries coordinated by the joint Insafe and INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.
Various teams within The Education People have been supporting and encouraging schools and settings to participate in Safer Internet Day for many years but to also encourage families to take part in activities to consolidate the learning at home.
With this in mind, The Education People's Kent Children's University (KCU) has produced a #SID2024 Challenge pack for children aged 5 to 14. The aim is for schools to share this resource with families in advance of half term.
Additional resources can be found on the KCU Safer Internet Day webpage
This Challenge pack contains 10 key challenge activity ideas as well as useful resources for children, schools and families to access. The Challenge will run until Thursday 29 March 2024 so there is plenty of time to get involved.
Young people who are part of Children’s University can earn a varying number of Learning Credits for each activity completed outside normal school time.
If your school would be interested in finding out more about KCU (either the Schools and/or Family models) please email email@example.com.
