Safer Internet Day

Chesterfield FC Community Trust are supporting Safer Internet Day, which inspires a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. 

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Safer Internet Day explores a new area or theme that is important to the young people we work with every day.  

It celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.  

The Community Trust are proud the announce the development of an Internet Safety virtual workshop which will be FREE to schools and parents for home schooling purposes by the end of the week. 

These workshops focus on the theme of reliability online, opening conversations with young people about how they explore information, looking at the strategies they can implement to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.

Robert Stevenson, the Trust’s Premier League co-ordinator, said “The workshops focus on what to trust online, exploring how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online. 

“We want to give young people the skills to support one another and the strategies to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.”
