On Tuesday 6th February 2018, the world celebrated Safer Internet Day 2018. Safer Internet Day (SID) is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre and this year’s theme was “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.
To celebrate the day, many organisations and services produced new resources and content to help raise awareness and spread positive messages. This blog post aims to highlight resources and content made available on or for SID 2018; schools and settings may find these resources helpful in the curriculum planning or to share with children and parents/carers.
