Today is 'Safer Internet Day 2016'.
What is Safer Internet Day?
Safer Internet Day 2016 will take place on the 9th February with the theme Play your part for a better internet!
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Get involved to play your part!

We will be running a competition for this year's theme. Pupils need to design a poster showing their take on 'Play your part in a better internet'. It can be a written or drawn poster or could even be done on a laptop or iPad app like 'Comic life'.
