All children and young people should be supported to develop the digital and life skills they need now and in the future. We define life skills as critical thinking, resilience, problem solving, creativity and empathy.
We are working in partnership with parents, carers, educators, children and young people to understand how we can support them to both manage the risks and embrace the benefits that come with digital technology.
We supported Corsham’s schools with a range of Safer Internet Day activities in February 2018. We will be rolling out a community-wide programme of activity later this year that will build on what we have learned through the Discovery phase of our programme.
