Safer Internet Day 2023

This year, Safer Internet Day will be celebrated on 7th February, to promote the safe and positive use of digital technologies for children and young people.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees hundreds of organisations unite to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.

This years theme is 'Want to talk about it?  Making space for conversations about life online'

Safer Internet Day on 7th February 2023 will be the 20th year the day has been celebrated globally. To mark this in the UK we are celebrating by putting children and young people’s voices at the heart of the day and encouraging them to shape the online safety support that they receive.

Keep an eye on Seesaw and our Twitter pages to see how Willowtown promote Safer Internet Day this year!
