A better internet starts with you

Safer Internet Day 2018 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018.  At Wychwood the girls in Remove and Inters have already started preparations by taking part in a 7 Day Digital Detox and writing their own digital code of conduct!  Challenges include putting their phone away after dinner and not posting anything for a day – How will they get on?  They will be taking part in quizzes in computing & examining their contribution to the digital world they are growing up in.


There will be a competition for each year in the lower school to design the best ‘jigsaw piece’ where they will showcase their pledge as to how they will ‘Create, share and show respect’.

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, each February to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology, especially among children and young people. Celebrated on the second day of the second week of the second month, each year on Safer Internet Day millions of people unite to inspire positive change and raise awareness of online safety issues and participate in events and activities right across the globe.

Safer Internet Day aims to not only create a safer internet but also a better internet, where everyone is empowered to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.
