Safer Internet tips for returning to school

Here are two great resources designed to help young people with internet safety:

1. The BBC Own It App is designed to help young people return to learning. It has videos and articles on topics including dealing with mean comments, reconnecting with friends, posting photos safely and back-to-school bedtime routines.

2. The UK Safer Internet Centre has published a blog featuring a series of short films created during lockdown by young people across the UK to inspire their peers to stay safe online and make the most of the internet. This could be a helpful resource for professionals to use to supplement online safety work though can also be directly accessed via parents, carers or young people.
