everyone across the UK and globally to unite for a better
internet. Whether you are a young person, parent, carer,
school or organisation, we can all 'be the change' and take
positive actions to make the internet a better place. Hundreds
of schools and organisations have pledged their support for Safer
Internet Day and it is this collaboration that helps ensure
Safer Internet Day has such a positive impact, reaching 40% of
UK children in 2016 and growing year on year."
Tracey Meeks Deputy Headteacher of Top Valley Academy said "we
have participated in Safer Internet Day for over 5 years and
believe this helps our students use the internet safely
and understand what part they play as a user. It is important
that youngsters understand the amazing opportunities the
internet gives them. But it is equally important to highlight
positive and negative uses of technology and to explore
the role we all play in helping to create a better and
safer online community ".
