Safer Internet Day kicks off on the 8th of February, and celebrates the theme of ‘All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online’. The day-long event that has been running for 17 years comes at a time when more and more children across the UK are using the Internet, whether that’s through remote learning or socialising with friends. Being online more can increase the risk of exposure to online dangers if guidance is missed. This is why the team at TrilbyTV are proud to be supporting this awareness day for another year, as it’s imperative to keep children safe online.
This years theme – “All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online”
This year, Safer Internet Day will be looking at a wide range of topics, from gaming and chat, to streaming and video, along with how young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are a part of. Using tailored learning materials, tips and resources for all ages as well as for educators and families, Safer Internet Day is challenging everyone to play their part in fostering supportive relationships and respectful communities online. From discussing the ways the Internet can be used to communicate, to creating positive change in online groups when bullying behaviours arise.

Will Gardner OBE, Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre, told us why Safer Internet Day is more vital than ever before,
“This Safer Internet Day comes at an important time, when being online has become a crucial lifeline for many young people, particularly during the turbulence of the last two years. Empowering young people is at the heart of what we do. With many young people saying that they want to learn more about how to play online games safely, it’s great to share how young people are taking matters into their own hands and open to discussing issues in online games. Managing risk, including potentially harmful content and contact, is fundamental to being safe online and looking after others.”
Top Tips for children and young people
As part of Safer Internet Day 2022, TrilbyTV will be supporting by providing the ‘Top Tips to Staying Safe Online’ slides from Childnet via our Content Catalogue. These tips around e-safety are a great way to ensure that parents and carers are supporting their children and giving them the tools to stay safe and positive online. From today, all of our education customers can add these slides to their screens in school for everyone to see and can share them remotely via our Public Links feature.
