Yesterday (11th February) was Safer Internet Day 2020. Every year, across both academies, we hold lessons, special assemblies, and fun activities to highlight problems that our pupils could face online, and to give them the tools and knowledge they may need to stay safe and happy.

New research by the UK Safer Internet Centre (comprised of Childnet, Internet Watch Foundation and SWGfL) released on Safer Internet Day yesterday reveals the internet is a fundamental part of young people’s identity, helping them find their own voice offline. The research marks Safer Internet Day, which will see millions of young people, schools, and organisations across the UK explore online safety and the theme of ‘free to be me’.
It comes as over 1,600 supporters in the UK, including schools, charities, police services, industry bodies, businesses, Government ministers, Premier League football clubs and celebrities join young people to ignite conversations and host events that promote the safe, responsible and positive use of technology.
Will Gardner OBE, Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre, says:
“The internet is primarily a place of positivity for young people. Whether being inspired to be the next campaigner, supporter or friend – it’s a place for them to find their voice, explore their identities, and support each other.
“We must help young people on this journey by acknowledging the pressures,
challenges and limits the internet also brings. We can do this by listening to them and starting conversations about our online lives. We know talking works; as a result of Safer Internet Day last year, 78% of young people felt more confident about what to do if they were worried about something online.
