Here at Safer Schools NI, we believe that every day should be a safer internet day for children and young people. That’s why for 2022’s Safer Internet Day, we’ve put together a list of all our resources we create year-round, to help you safeguard the children and young people in your care online.

Safer Internet Day 2022’s theme is ‘exploring respect and relationships online’. From online bullying to LGBTQ+ and the power of words, we have resources on a range of topics designed to help children and young people develop and maintain safer, healthier relationships with others online.

All our resources below have been created by our online safeguarding experts. For teachers and school staff, the Teach Hub website contains lesson plans and classroom resources like posters and activity packs. The Home Learning Hub is the place to find resources like videos and activity packs for parents, carers and the whole family! You’ll find links to both our Hubs in the Further Resources section at the bottom of this article.

Bullying Resources

No child or young person should experience bullying – for those that do, they shouldn’t have to face it alone. By understanding how and why bullying happens online, you’ll be equipping yourself with the tools needed to support anyone in your care who is going through bullying.
