Safer Internet Day on 8 February: All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online

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. Safer Internet Day 2022 is on 8 February.

Online communities and relationships are very important to young people and have only become more important over the last few years. From gaming and chat to streaming and video, young people are shaping interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. Safer Internet Day 2022 celebrates young people's role in creating a safer internet, whether that is while gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.

To help your school join in and explore the campaign theme of respect and relationships in online gaming with your pupils, free education packs (for age groups ranging from age three to 18) are available for you to download. The packs (available in both English and Welsh) include assembly presentations, lesson plans and videos. 

There are also resources for parents and carers to use at home with their children, including conversation starters, quick activities and more.  

NAHT supports Safer Internet Day and would encourage our members to: 

  • Register as​ a supporter – join organisations across the UK that deliver activities for Safer Internet Day each year, from tech companies, banks and football clubs to schools, police services and charities. You can see what other organisations across the UK are doing to support the day using this tool.
  • Spread the word – use the images, logos and sample tweets provided to help get people involved in Safer Internet Day; spread the word using the hashtags #SaferInternetDay and #PlayYourPart
  • Watc​h the films – Safer Internet Centre has created a series of films that explore the theme of trust and reliability online. There is a campaign film exploring the theme in more depth as well as films for different age groups and parents and carers.
