STUDENT VOICE SURVEY
Our school, as well as many others in County Durham, is participating in a survey for children and young people. This survey will inform the development of plans and services across County Durham and is designed to positively impact upon pupils as services can be directed to support where particular issues come to light.
The survey has been designed in conjunction with children and young people and includes questions of a range of topics including:
- Career advice (secondary only)
- Healthy relationships
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Behaviour and safety
- Online safety
Health and physical wellbeing
- Physical activity
- Healthy eating
- Smoking, alcohol, (drugs – secondary only)
- Hobbies and interests
- Access to community facilities
Each response will be anonymous and confidential, and therefore no pupil will be identified when the data is analysed. The council’s Research and Intelligence team will receive the results and data for use in further analysis at council and school level. The council and partners will then use this information to plan and target services, especially where improvement is required. Further information is available in Frequently Asked Questions, which can be found below.
I hope you will agree with us that this is an exercise in which we wish to co-operate fully. I will assume you DO APPROVE unless I hear otherwise, and I look forward to working with you to support the best school life, health and wellbeing for our pupils.
