Safer Internet Day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and how to create a better and safer online community. This year the theme for Safer Internet Day is:
Be the change : unite for a better internet!
There are many ways in which you can get involved with Safer Internet Day 2017!
Enter our competition!
This year we want the entries to raise awareness on how young people can work together and play their part for a better internet and make sure that they stay safe online. We want you to be creative as possible! You have many options such as creating a poster, poem, song, PowerPoint, leaflet, film, cartoon, or something that we have not even thought of!
Your entry should be on the theme: Be the change: unite for a better internet! and should promote a positive message. This competition is open to all children and young people living and going to school in Oxfordshire.
There will be a chance to win individual prizes of £30 high street vouchers! You will also have the chance to win £100 for your school or setting to spend on an Anti-Bullying/E-Safety Campaign! So, get creative and promote a positive message for Safer Internet Day 2017!
All entries must be sent to the Oxfordshire Anti-Bullying Co-odinator by Friday 7th April, and must be clearly labelled with your full name, age, and the name of your school or other organisation.

Fill in the Oxfordshire Sexting Survey
In Oxfordshire we undertook some research around sexting, where people send intimate images or words to each other. We spoke to children and young people across Oxfordshire, who had lots of good information and advice to share.
One thing they said was that we should do a survey in Oxfordshire around Sexting.
