Preston North End is supporting Safer Internet Day 2021, which this year is being celebrated with the theme of 'an Internet we trust', exploring reliability in the online world.
Safer Internet Day inspires a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively, and this year is taking place on Tuesday 9th February.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Preston North End Community and Education Trust will be celebrating Safer Internet Day by delivering themed lessons around Internet safety, utilising resources which are available for all to access for free, online here.
Learners on the Trust's programmes will also be taking part in the Guinness World Record attempt from the Safer Internet Centre and 2Simple to gain the highest amount of pledges for an online safety campaign.
PNECET Head of Education Liam Sealey said: “We are proud once again to be supporting Safer Internet Day this year.
“Learners from across our programmes will be spending part of their day watching the Safer Internet Day videos and virtual assemblies, as well as having themed lessons focusing on Internet safety.
“It’s particularly important that we support Safer Internet Day this year with much of our education delivery being done online, so that we can continue to highlight to our learners what they need to be aware of while using the Internet.”
