Safer Internet Day 2024 takes place today, the 6th of February 2024, with celebrations and learning based around the theme ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’.

Safer Internet Day is the UK’s biggest celebration of online safety. Each year we aim to cover an online issue or theme that speaks to the things young people are seeing and experiencing online. Safer Internet Day was created in consultation with young people across the UK, this year Safer Internet Day will be focusing on change online, this includes covering:

  • Young people’s perspective on new and emerging technology
  • Using the internet to make change for the better
  • The changes young people want to see online
  • The things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline

At Bede, we will be supporting Safer Internet Day by learning about how we can be a better digital citizen using today’s technology and develop our digital literacy through a range of computing lessons across school.
