Celebration days and weeks

Safer Internet Day - 6th February 2024 


Safer Internet Day is held every February all around the world. Last year, over 170 different countries celebrated the day!

Safer Internet Day is a chance to think about any worries we might have about using technology and the internet, but it’s also about celebrating all the fantastic things technology can help us with.

Last year, over half of the children in the UK heard about or joined in with Safer Internet Day.


This year the theme was:

Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’.

The campaign focused on change online, covering:

• Young people’s perspective on new and emerging technology

• Using the internet to make change for the better

• The changes young people want to see online

• The things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline

Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in school, and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.









Safer Internet Day - 8 February 2022

Exploring respect and relationships online



This year we have been looking at two things:   

1. Having fun online, like playing favourite games or watching favourite shows 

2. How we behave with other people online.



In KS1 we discussed how important it is to think about the feelings of others. In the same way we all try to be kind offline, we should also do this when we're online.

We followed the story of Digiduck and the Magic Castle in which Digiduck and his friends have fun playing online together, whilst learning important lessons on asking for help if something pops up on the screen, and permission before downloading something new.

You can share the story at:

Digiduck and the Magic Castle



In KS2 the focus has been on behaving respectfully whilst having fun online. Through a series of scenarios the children discussed the appropriateness of a character's actions and, if the behaviour is not respectful, how the character could respond instead.






Safer Internet Day - 9 February 2021

An Internet we trust



The focus was on exploring reliability in the online world.


In Key Stage 1 the children were introduced to Detective Digiduck, a character who encourages children to start to think about online content, and helps them to understand that what they read or see online might be true, untrue, or someone's opinion. The link below will take you to the Detective Digiduck website where you can enjoy his adventures with your children.


In Key Stage 2 the children participated in discussions and a range of activities enabling them to explore the concept of online reliability and steps they can take to check the validity of what they read and see on the Internet.


Here are some examples of their super work!
