Hopes and Streams – online safety report from LGfL DigiSafe

40,000 pupils took part in this year’s LGfL DigiSafe pupil online-safety survey about their online lives. We found out what they love and what they hate, what really goes on behind closed screens, and who they trust when things go wrong. Discover what we learned and what it means for schools, parents, industry and government in our new report, ‘Hopes & Streams’.

The above images feature just some of the stats mentioned – you can read the full report at pupilsurvey.lgfl.net where you can also watch an overview video which is another great way to share the report with colleagues.

LGfL DigiSafe have produced a template letter to parents that you might wish to use, detailing findings from the report but also help and support over the holidays, you can download the letter: LGfL-OS-Letter-end-of-year.

The next steps for schools have been compiled in a blog post that you can read here.  Mental health and self-harm were major themes of the survey especially with ‘self-harm bullying’. You can read about this from page 35 of the report, which you can view in an online flip book or download as a high-res pdf from pupilsurvey.lgfl.net.

Another key topic from the survey was live-streaming and this is the first downloadable CPD powerpoint which has been made using the findings go the survey to help you update staff in your September safeguarding updates.  You can find this alongside other materials at live-streaming.lgfl.net.

It would be great to hear from you if you make use of any of the above resources by sharing what you use on our DigiSafe Channels on Twitter and Facebook.
