Claire Coutinho, Children, Families and Wellbeing Minister, Department for Education

“When I talk to parents, one of their number one concerns is their children coming across horrific content online. I also hear from children who have found some of the sites they’ve come across upsetting.
Safer Internet Day is a terrific way to raise awareness of online safety, and we are listening to parents and children about the changes they want to see.
Making sure children are safe, happy and well is one of our top priorities. Online safety is a key part of the curriculum, and we’re providing a support package so that schools can teach this material with confidence.”
