On Tuesday 9th February, the UK celebrated Safer Internet day!
The theme this year was:
‘An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world’
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explored reliability online. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?
Below is a list of fun and engaging resources which will help you to become safe and intelligent online citizens.

Avatar Challenge (with BRFC)
An avatar is a digital image, created to represent your online identity. Avatars may seem a little silly, but they allow for a form of self-expression that extends beyond the capabilities of text and emoji alone – and they are more personal to you! It’s the way the online community will see you.
Using an avatar is a MUCH safer way to make your online accounts more personal. This way, strangers cannot learn any sensitive details about you, and they will not know what your actual face looks like!

Tips for staying safe online:
- Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
