National Pupil Internet Use survey

Schools across the UK took part in a national survey of internet use by pupils when at home.  Brett Laniosh from Catshill Learning Partnerships, who carried out the survey, said that the results from over 19,000 pupils provide valuable information to schools on the range of hardware such as laptops, tablets, consoles and smart phones being used by young people. The survey was supported by education technology association Naace.


About the survey

Each class are shown a number of devices and pupils are asked to show by raising their hand which they use at home.

The numbers were collated for each school with the national results published here for Safer Internet Day 2017.

A free teaching resource has been published and is available here.



Schools can still carry out the survey and compare their results with the national average by completing the form below.
