Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT said:

“Safer Internet Day provides a great opportunity for school leaders to emphasise to pupils and parents alike that while the internet provides a powerful source of information, it needs to be handled carefully. It’s vital that schools and families work together to give young people the tools they need to navigate the internet safely. Whilst this is already happening in many schools, progress is being held back because Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) has not yet been given statutory status alongside Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). Online safety must be seen as part of a bigger picture in schools for pupils of all ages.”
