On Tuesday 6th February 2018, millions across the UK and globally will be celebrating Safer Internet Day and Cardiff City FC Foundation have pledged our support along with hundreds of schools and organisations across the UK.

 

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day is a great opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of technology, and to remember that ‘a better internet starts with you’. 

We will be delivering sessions in primary schools across South Wales, giving children an insight into how to stay safe online, and how they can prevent getting into trouble whilst browsing the web. Delivering this through our Premier League Primary Stars Transition Project, it will also provide children with the knowledge they need once they make the transition from primary to secondary school. 

 

Visit the UK Safer Internet Centre website (www.saferinternet.org.uk) where you can take the Safer Internet Day quiz, see what’s happening on the day, and find out more about what you can do to help your friends and family to stay safe online.
