Over the last couple of months schools across Redbridge have taken part in the LGfL eSafety survey 2013. To date over 10,000 students have responded. LGFL launched their interim report (which includes analysis of 8482 pupils responses) today - on Safer Internet Day.
Some statements from the report include:
Facebook usage increases rapidly in Year 9 but over half of the students who identified Facebook as a favourite site were under 13 (the minimum age for Facebook sign-up).
81% have not been bullied online, but 2% have experienced it many times.
A third of respondents have encountered things online that make them feel uncomfortable. Two thirds of those tell a trusted adult.
