The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a UK wide conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. This year’s theme was ‘Making space for conversation about life online’.

Here is one message emphasised in the film:

  • Talk about your experiences
  • Ask adults for help
  • Support your friends online
  • Respect people’s opinions
  • Report any problems

Mr Robert Jenkins, Headteacher at Ysgol Bro Teifi, said: “We are very proud of our pupils for emphasising an incredibly important message and I would like to thank all staff for their support and for giving our pupils different opportunities to participate in.”

Councillor Wyn Thomas is the Cabinet Member with responsibility for Schools, Lifelong Learning and Skills, Support and Intervention. He said: “Congratulations to the pupils of Ysgol Bro Teifi and Ysgol Dyffryn Cledlyn. It’s great to see two schools in Ceredigion reach the top. This message is an important one, especially since the web and social media are so accessible these days.”
