Plan now for the 2010 "Safer Internet Day" - Tuesday 9th February

Safer Internet Day is a European-wide initiative and is the one day in the calendar that will give a focus to internet safety issues. There are a range activities taking place across the week between Monday 8th – Friday 12th February that can raise awareness of how to protect young people online. The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre have launched a micro-site at which has been designed to give teachers, parents and child protection professionals some ideas and suggestions about how to get involved. The other significant place to go for excellent eSafety resources is Childnet - - and 10 minutes spent on this site will give you excellent ideas for eSafety assemblies, classroom activities and discussions for all subject areas.

What can you do?

You can help raise awareness of online safety issues in your community and here are a few suggestions and ideas from CEOP to get you thinking...

If you need support in planning or running an event for parents, do get in touch. Otherwise make use of the resources available from the links above and consider putting the following link on both your website and learning platform for all students to have easy access to.
