Safer Internet Day
Eastwood marks Safer Internet Day held annually in early February.
This Safer Internet Day the theme is 'Inspiring Change'. From gaming and chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are part of. Safer Internet Day celebrates young people's role in creating a safer internet, whether that is whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.
Often we hear about the negative impact that the internet and new technology has on young people, but on Safer Internet Day we want to celebrate the positives and to explore what we can all do to make sure that all young people have a positive time online. Parents and carers play a crucial role in supporting children to navigate the risks and make the most of the opportunities offered by technology. The most important thing you can do is to have a conversation and stay engaged with your children's digital lives.
The Safer Internet website has lots of factsheets, information and advice for parents in keeping children safe on line, or you could click on the links below.
