The annual global awareness campaign takes place on Tuesday 6 February, with millions of people around the world pledging support to make the internet a safer place.
Coordinated by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the day is a great opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the responsible, respectful, critical and creative use of technology, and to remember that ‘a better internet starts with you’.
The Sheffield Wednesday Community Team visited Hallam Primary School this morning to deliver an assembly to KS1 pupils about how to stay safe whilst on the internet – with some extra special help from Ollie the Owl.
Later that day, SWFCCP Safeguarding Officer, Richard Groves, delivered an educational discussion about their activity online and how to reduce any risks.
Owls Under-23s players Sean Clare, Frederik Nielsen and James Murphy greeted students from Hillsborough Primary School to show support for the initiative.
Other attendees to the presentation at Sheffield Wednesday Training Ground were SWFCCP Btec students studying Football Development.
