Safer Internet Challenge 2022

You can use these support materials to help your children complete the Safer Internet Challenge!



Safer Internet Day 2022 is on Tuesday 8th February and will be celebrated with the theme 'All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online'.

Safer Internet Day inspires a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. 


Holiday activities for children and families

To help schools promote safer internet messages to families, beyond Safer Internet Day, the Education Safeguarding Service's Online Safety Team has worked with Kent Children's University to produce a #SaferInternetDay Challenge pack for children, aged 5 to 14.

This pack contains 10 key challenge activity ideas, as well as useful resources for children, schools and families to access.  The Challenge will run until the 31st May 2022 so there is plenty of time to get involved.

The Safer Internet Challenge launches with schools and families on the 8th February 2022 and you can find the resource here so why not send the resource home to your parents/carers this week so families can get involved during the half-term or Easter break.

Young people who are part of Children's University can earn a varying number of Learning Credits for each activity completed outside normal school time.
