Recap: Safer Internet Day at Everton Football Club

Safer Internet Day 2019 kicked off at Goodison Park with Everton Football Club hosting 250 young people from 22 schools for workshops on this year’s theme of "Our internet, our choice" with a focus on understanding consent in a digital world.

Andy Wood, SWGfL and UKSIC Online Safety Consultant, led an assembly with the pupils engaging them to think about what they share online, what consent is and how important it is to have permission to share.  Pupils shared some great ideas about how to ask for consent and discussed how it might make people feel if something is shared without permission; and importantly why it’s ok to say "no" to something that they are not happy with.

The pupils were also led through activities from the Safer Internet Day Education Packs which they launched into enthusiastically. Have you ever considered how you would draw the internet?! This stumped our schools for a moment too before realising that everyone had the right answer!  Together, we learnt how important it is to respect each other and our different ideas and understand how seeking and obtaining consent helps keep everyone safer (and happier) online. 

At the end of the workshop, all of our school supporters were then able to visit pitch side and take some photos with club legend Graeme Sharp! Students left us buzzing with ideas of what they would be sharing about the day back at school. 

There was fantastic support from everyone at Goodison Park during this fourth Safer Internet Day with Everton Football Club.  We look forward to seeing what Safer Internet Day 2020 will bring!
