Scottish Government Minister for Childcare and Early Years, Maree Todd said:

“All children and young people should be able to enjoy the internet and benefit from the great opportunities the online world has to offer in a safe and secure environment, and it is our aim to ensure this happens. Safer Internet Day is an excellent opportunity to encourage young people to consider where the dangers lie online, as well as their online behaviour and the impact this can have on others. This year’s theme ‘Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you’ promotes that important message, reminding them that the future of internet etiquette is in their hands. By educating young people about online safety and respecting themselves and those around them, we can ensure the internet remains a safe and enjoyable space as well as fantastic resource for them to explore and learn.”
