The internet has become an essential resource for people of all ages, providing access to a broad choice of entertainment and information, literally on a global scale.
But its global reach is not without its dangers, as this website has sought to emphasise through our frequent warnings about online scams and frauds.
Children and young people may be particularly vulnerable, with the availability of highly unsuitable material and the risks of grooming that most adults will recognise.
The use by young children of smartphones and internet-connected tablets increases the risks that youngsters will come into contact with disturbing content.
Safer Internet Day is an international initiative that seeks to remind us of the inherent dangers of the internet and to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, particularly as far as children and adolescents are concerned.
In the week before half-term holiday, Haddenham Community Infant School supported Safer Internet Day 2017.
To highlight the day, an interactive assembly was held and the children enjoyed meeting the character 'Smartie the Penguin' when they helped him make safe choices when using the internet.
Later in the day Year 1 and Year 2 took part in a range of activities including a Keeping Safe Online team quiz!
If you feel rather ill-informed about the risks of internet use and would like to help your children or grandchildren to stay safe online, here's a good place to start.
