You can use these support materials to help your children complete the Safer Internet Challenge at home during the half-term break!



Safer Internet Day 2024 will take place on 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.

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people, and to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively.

Co-ordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.


Safer Internet Day 2024 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 29th March 2024 so there is plenty of time to get involved.

Note for schools:  The Safer Internet Challenge launches with schools and families on the 1st February and you can find the resource below so why not send the resource home to your parents/carers this week so families can get involved during the half-term to reinforce your online safety messaging.

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.
