Safer Internet Day 2018

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre in February of each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people. Safer Internet Day 2018 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018 with the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”. 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. 

This Safer Internet Day we are encouraging everyone to play their part in building a better internet.

Children and young people, schools, parents and carers, and organisations all across the UK are invited to make a pledge to do something great and positive online this Safer Internet Day.  

Activities in school on Safer Internet Day:

The children will be using the jigsaw template to fill in a pledge to do something positive online. It could be a picture of the kind things they do online or a pledge to take a positive action to make the internet a better place. The jigsaw will show how their actions fit in with the actions of those around them, to create a better internet.

Online Safety

The Internet has become an everyday part of children’s lives and brings with it new opportunities to communicate and handle information from across the globe. However, increased provision brings with it increased risk. At Godinton Primary School we have a robust set of policies and practices in place to ensure that learners are safe. The use of the internet is an essential part of learning, as required by the National Curriculum. To enable pupils to access the internet safely we ask that both pupils and their parents/carers sign the school’s Acceptable Use Policy to show that our e-Safety Rules have been understood and agreed.


Staff are trained in e-safety issues and we educate pupils on how to keep themselves safe online and how to use new technologies responsibly. We have clear e-Safety Rules and Sanctions which are prominently displayed throughout the school. Pupils also participate in e-safety awareness projects such as National Safer Internet Day and Anti-Bullying Week.

We aim to help parents understand e-safety issues and risks and provide information on how parents can help keep their children stay safe on-line at home. Please view our Computing policies below and if you require further information on any computing or e-safety issue please contact:

The Internet can be a wonderful learning tool with information resources which provide new opportunities for learning and sharing of information. However, parents should be aware of the potential dangers posed to their children on-line and take measures to ensure their children can enjoy using the internet safely.
