Safer Internet Survey
In addition, all Wolverhampton schools have been invited to work with their young people to complete an online safety survey. The survey is designed for all students from Year 5 and above and focuses on the emotional impact that their online behaviour can have. HeadStart and Learning Technologies are keen to capture relevant data on these themes from young people locally to ensure that we are doing the best we can to support young people’s wellbeing in the online world.
Data from the survey will be reported on a citywide basis, and shared back with individual schools for analysis and action in modifying their curriculum, pastoral support and policies.

On Safer Internet Day, February 6th
During Safer Internet Day itself, members of the HeadStart and Learning Technologies team worked with parents and young people at Wilkinson Primary school on a range of Safer Internet Day sessions and activities, including recording Safer Internet Day podcasts, and parental awareness sessions.
Meanwhile, the HeadStart Young Person Engagement Team have worked with HeadStarters in schools, and with the B-Safe Junior Safeguarding Board to collect ideas for a more positive internet!
HeadStart recognises the risks that can be associated with using the internet and technology, but strongly believes that the answer is openness, discussion and education, not a 'head in the sand' approach. Young people will need to know and understand how to be emotionally resilient in a world increasingly dominated by technology and HeadStart is supporting them in achieving that.
