Kirsty Williams, Welsh Government Education Secretary said:

“I am delighted to see that this year’s Safer Internet Day theme is “Create, Connect and Share Respect”. There is a huge amount of work going on in Wales to help keep learners safe online. As well as working on an Online Safety Action Plan for Wales, we have also launched an ‘Online Safety Zone’ on our digital learning platform, Hwb, developed a tool which helps schools evaluate their online safety practice and delivered over 180 training sessions for teachers and governors across all local authorities in Wales since 2014. In addition, our Digital Competence Framework, the first element of the new curriculum to be introduced in Wales, includes specific elements on online behaviour, cyber bullying and health and well-being.”
