Safer Internet Day 2019 Competition

Encourage pupils to work together for a better internet with our annual competition


SID2019 LogoThe next ‘Safer Internet Day’ will be the sixteenth edition of the event and will take place worldwide on Tuesday 5th February 2019.

The theme for 'Safer Internet Day 2019' will be ‘Together for a better internet’.

The day aims to inspire young people to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. The theme encourages us to consider what we do online, such as exploring the internet and thinking about how it works, considering where the information comes from and who owns it, being responsible for our own activity in the digital space and taking control of our own online lives.

Winners

The winners of our 2019 competition are:

SID2019 Primary WinnerBest Primary School
This entry was submitted by Cwm Glas Primary School in Swansea. Overseeing the project, Claire Howells from the school added "The boys really enjoyed the challenge of making a poster and used the example you provided as a template to build on. They took on board all the information they were given. They even created a background on a painting program so they knew it wasn’t a copyright image. They have been very excited for today to find out the competition winner!"

castleford tweetBest Secondary School
The winner in the secondary school category were the Digital Leaders from Castleford Academy.

Their winning entry can be viewed on Twitter here.

Mr Whitworth from Castleford Academy commented "Digital Leaders is something that we have been slowly developing over the past 12months. Giving pupils more ownership of Digital technologies and its development in the school. We are always on the look out for projects to get involved in. This one is particularly important to us as a school. We had a number of in-depth discussions about what our top tips would be. All pupils enjoyed the involvement in the project and it has been rolled out across the school as part of our Safer Internet Day (week) campaign."

Winning schools each receive one years free membership to Safeguarding Essentials.
