A brief synopsis of the report shows that:
- One third of internet users are under18
- 3 – 4 year old children spend over 8 hours online each week
- 12-15 year old children spend over 20 hours a week online
- Much more needs to be done to support children online
- Children do not have adequate online skills to protect themselves
- A compulsory digital citizenship programme should be compulsory for every pupil aged 4 – 14
- Children do not trust teachers to have the right online skills to help them
- OFSTED says that staff development is inconsistent
- Heads and governors often have misconceptions about the need for continued training
- The Computing Curriculum does not focus sufficiently on social media usage and assessment of content

JEM has resources and services which can help schools address all these elements.
