Tuesday 9th February is Safer Internet Day!
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people
There are a large number of resources available from the UK Safer internet centre including quizzes, teaching resources and assembly ideas, as well as parent information sheets.
E-safety is a key strand of the Switched on Computing resources and we have also produced a number of extra resources to help you embed e-safety in your lessons and your school. In advance of the big day, we have gathered together a list of where to find e-safety advice from Rising Stars:
1. Download our e-safety posters for your school – two available!

3. Within Switched on Computing
E-safety is embedded throughout the Switched on Computing units, there is a handy e-safety road map at the start of each year group and additional support in every unit. Download this grid of e-safety coverage within Switched on Computing for Years 1-6 and watch our short video showing you where e-safety is covered within the resource.
