How 'e-safe' are your pupils?

To celebrate this year's Safer Internet Day, test your pupils' knowledge of common e-safety issues with this short quiz.

The quiz touches on some of the risks young people can face online, including:

  • sexting and the sharing of inappropriate images
  • sophisticated 'phishing scams' and untrustworthy apps
