Barnhill Community High is joining the global Safer Internet Day campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.
Celebrated in over 100 countries, Safer Internet Day will see Barnhill Community High join hundreds of organisations right across the UK and globally to ‘be the change’ and help create a better internet.
To celebrate the day, Barnhill Community High is launching the “Digital E-Leaders “Programme with over 480 students in Years 7 & 8 getting involved.
Barnhill Community High 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.”
