WHAT IS SAFE?

Safe is a programme of practical activities that develop young people's skills, self-confidence and safety awareness when using social networking sites.

Social networking and sharing content online are now an integral part of young people's lives. They provide many opportunities for them to develop creative and communication skills in ways that are relevant to them, in school or at home. However, with these new opportunities come many new choices.

The Safe programme aims to help children make positive and informed choices when creating and sharing online.

Designed to work on safe social networks, the free materials and teacher resources will enable schools easily deliver engaging activities and develop digital literacy skills.

Sign up to download free teacher activity guides, worksheets, extension tasks and support documents.

On completion, young people receive the Certificate in Safe Social Networking and can earn their online Safe Badge.
