A report for pupils

We are very used to producing reports for schools, local authorities, public health departments and the public. 

What is a bit more unusual is to be asked to produce a report for primary pupils.  However, always willing, we've had a go for one school, and having got a model that we (and the pupils) were happy with, we can now offer this as a service to all schools.

The brief was:

  • A summary of the school's results
  • Simple enough for most pupils to access
  • Eye-catching
  • Pupil-friendly

See what you think! 

Guernsey's Young People

Two decades of SHEU Health-Related Behaviour Surveys
The Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU) have been working with the colleagues from the Bailiwick of Guernsey for two decades now, and our survey work has accumulated a database of over 10,000 cases.  These have mostly been whole-population lifestyle surveys but some have been focussed on particular topics or groups.

Comments about SHEU

"Over the last twenty years you have achieved much. The surveys and subsequent reports have painted the clearest picture we have of what young people are doing and what they think." Tribute from OFSTED to John Balding, presented at his retirement lunch, May 2005

"Many thanks for all of the fantastic information that you have sent to me over the years, it has really helped me to plan relevant courses for my students to follow and to help me to focus on the needs of the students I teach."

"The Health Related Behaviour Survey is an incredibly useful resource for (us) as it provides schools, with invaluable data which can inform curriculum content, methods of lesson delivery and empower schools to better meet the needs of their pupils."

I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed your talk at last week's conference.

"Just to say a huge thank you for all your efforts in helping us with the Health survey amongst pupils. It has provided us with significant data which will be used across the school to help us improve. It helped us to obtain a healthy schools standard as well. I hope we can make this an annual feature as we can track the changing health of our pupils." Headteacher

I would be extremely interested to see the results as I know how useful this information has been to the other schools in the
borough
