“It’s important to be safe online, because lots of people are being bullied...”
“If people don’t learn about online safety… anything can happen”
These are just two of the comments from young people in Corsham, featured in the video Ci filmed in a number of Corsham area schools as part of our work on Safer Internet Day 2018.
Teachers also reflect on the work being done to bring the schools and community together to empower young people to use the internet safely; and Ci’s CEO, Rachel Neaman sums up the importance of this work: “We want to create informed citizens of the future and by involving the whole community in the conversation about this, children, parents, teachers and carers we can start to have some real impact.”
Other activities to support Safer Internet Day in Corsham include an exhibition of findings from the survey of 2000-plus pupils, which runs at the Springhill Campus throughout February half-term before touring the participating schools.
