Safer Internet Day 2017 tookplace on 7th February, with the slogan 'Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

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 in helping to create a better internet. For further information on this day please follow the link: www.saferinternetday.org.uk.  At St. Augustine's, children in all year groups will take part in class based activities throughout the school day.  A leaflet relating to the above theme will be created and sent home to ensure parents are informed and updated.
