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.
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. Get involved to play your part!
Partnership for Children
Partnership for Children is an independent charity which promotes the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children, both in the UK and in many countries around the world. We produce mental health promotion programmes for primary schools that teach children skills for life: how to cope with everyday difficulties, how to communicate with and get on with other people, and build self-awareness and emotional resilience.
Zippy’s Friends and Apple’s Friends programmes have been independently evaluated and found to improve children’s coping skills, social skills, emotional literacy and reduce bullying. There is also an adapted version of Zippy’s Friends for pupils with SEND.
If you are interested in delivering Zippy’s Friends or Apple’s Friends to your class, please visit Partnership for Children’s website for more information about training courses for teachers. Our website also has free downloadable resources to help children talk about feelings and cope with difficult situations.
