Safer Internet Day 2024 

This special day will take place on the 6th of February 2024, with celebrations and learning based around the theme ‘Together for a Better Internet’. Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. In the UK, we are celebrating by putting children and young people’s voices at the heart of the day and encouraging them to shape the online safety support that they receive. That is why we are asking parents, carers, teachers, government, policymakers, and the wider online safety industry to take time to listen to children and young people and make positive change together. This year we are hoping to answer the following questions:


  • What issues really matter to children and young people?
  • What changes do they want to see?
  • How can we all work together to advocate for them moving forward?


With your help, Safer Internet Day 2024 can be a springboard for conversations that shape how we talk about and respond to online issues, not just for one day, but throughout the whole year. For more resources to support you and your child at home please click here


At Wymondley we marked this day with a special assembly for all pupils giving the children the chance to ask questions and discuss challenges that they have faced online. Please make time to talk to your child at home, on a regular basis, about any concerns that they have and to answer any questions that they have about their experiences online. As children spend more and more of their time online, accessing the online world through a growing number of devices, there has never been a more important time to have these discussions together.

Useful Web Sites for Parents

In school the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning provides for a safe and secure online environment. Many parents and carers do seek advice on how they can help their children to 'Stay Safe' online outside of school. These websites provide comprehensive information about online safety and once parents and carers have a wider knowledge and understanding of the issues they can decide what is right for their family.


Free ISP Parental Controls

Childnet International has been working with BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin Media to produce a new resource for parents and carers and those working with them: Video guides for the free ISP parental controls. The videos are available on the Safer Internet Centre website and the films can be embedded or downloaded.
