Top Valley Academy supports Safer Internet Day 2017

Top Valley Academy is joining the global Safer Internet Day campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.


Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day will take place on Tuesday 7th February 2016 with the theme 'Be the change:  Unite for a better internet'. Celebrated in over 100 countries, Safer Internet Day will see Top Valley Academy join hundreds of organisations right across the UK and globally to 'be the change' and help create a better internet.


To celebrate the day, Top Valley Academy is delivering activities with students, parents and staff getting involved. Top Valley Academy will be part of a nationwide day of action involving the #SID2017 social media campaign and youth events where young people will have the opportunity to have their say about the digital issues that affect them.


Will Gardner, Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre and CEO of Childnet, said:  "Safer Internet Day is an opportunity for 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 ".
