General Secretary, NAHT – Paul Whiteman

NAHT has supported Safer Internet Day for many years. We want young people to be informed consumers of technology, safe enough to surf the internet without fear and smart enough to know what to do if they see inappropriate content. We firmly believe that social media and technology companies have a duty of care to make sure their services are safe. Schools offer guidance for pupils about staying safe online during lessons like PSHE. Safer Internet Day is a great way to make sure young people are ‘switched on’ about the risks and benefits of going online.
