Safer Internet Day : 5th February 2019 : NEU supportive comments below.

Dear colleagues


The NEU is a supporter of Safer Internet Day 2019, taking place on 5 February.   In advance of the day, some videos have been produced – see link below – including one about how children feel when their parents post about them online without asking their permission.  Teachers, particularly primary teachers, may find these useful so please share as you wish.




Get involved in Safer Internet Day 2019


There are just three weeks to go until Safer Internet Day!

We are excited to say that we have launched a brand new social media pack for stakeholders! This includes social media posts you can schedule in the lead up to Safer Internet Day as well as on the day itself.  

We also have some exciting new videos to share with you! In these videos, young people answer some key questions on consent online, and talk about how they feel when their parents post about them online without asking permission first.

Thank you to everyone who has already signed up as a Safer Internet Day Supporter! We have already seen over 600 organisations on the supporters list. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to sign up as a supporter now! 

Best wishes,

NEW: Video content you can share now

We have some new video content that looks at the theme of Safer Internet Day 2019, as well and giving an interesting insight into young people’s experiences of ‘sharenting’.

In the first video, the Childnet Digital Leaders answer some key questions on consent online. Starting with what they like doing online, to how easy it is to say no, they then finish with some top tips for other children their age (7-11 years old)! Watch it here.

In the second video, young people told us how they feel when their parents post about them online without asking permission first. Watch it here.

Also, if you havent taken a look already, our Education Packs and SID TV films are a fantastic way to inspire and engage young people to use the internet safely and positively.
