This term we celebrate Safer Internet Day; an opportunity to spread important cyber safety messages with all our children and young people. We have been thrilled to see that a record number of schools are embracing this year’s theme ‘ Together for a better Internet’ with us visiting Primary schools over a huge three week period in order to engage school children in topical conversations and activities all about keeping safe online.
With the support of Kidscape*, our wonderful Charity Partners who helped train our Bigfooters ahead of this year’s bookings, our assemblies and workshops have grown in strength and breadth since last year. With our incredible Bigfoot bunny ‘Boo’ making his digital debut with a brand new animation made specially for EYFS and KS1, we were confident that this year’s impact would be vast,
Thank you to all our incredible schools that have invited us into their halls to bring this important message home for their children. And if you would like us to visit your school or education setting, there’s still time; we offer our Internet Safety programmes throughout the whole year. Visit our dedicated page to learn more about the range of programmes we have on offer HERE.
What schools say about our Safer Internet Day programmes:

Children were enthusiastic but also took it seriously and this impacted their learning. (Marina Jones, Earlsfield Primary on Cyber Safety Workshops)
