Surveys - Which?

Which questions do you want to ask in your survey?

Perception or Lifestyle surveys? Single-topic or Comprehensive?  Off-the-shelf or Customised?

Perception surveys

SHEU is perhaps best known for its lifestyle surveys, but for many years we have been helping schools get feedback from pupils and parents about how they see the work of the school and what might need changing.

Our most popular survey was structured around the Every Child Matters framework of:

* Be Healthy

* Stay Safe

* Enjoy and Achieve

* Make a Positive Contribution

* Economic Well-Being

Versions exist for pupils and parents, and a comparison report is produced for the school:

Lifestyle surveys

SHEU is perhaps best known for its lifestyle surveys, available on paper and online, which cover a wide range of topics related to health and well-being.

Topics normally include:

* Personal background

* Diet

* Health

* Hygiene

* Smoking, alcohol, illegal drugs

* Sex and Relationships

The results are an ideal base for planning towards the Healthy Schools Enhancement Model.

Our questionnaires exist in forms for primary schools, secondary schools and colleges and can be adapted for pupils with special needs. We have many alternative topics and items in our question banks, and will work with you to create a customised survey.

Single-topic surveys

We have developed specialist surveys, mostly for secondary-age pupils, in the key target areas for public health improvement:

  • Alcohol, drugs and tobacco
  • Bullying and Emotional Well-being
  • Food and physical activity
  • Sex and Relationships

We have conducted other surveys in the past with different topics:

  • Smoking
  • Environmental education
  • Governor surveys
  • Staff surveys

We can adapt one of these to suit your requirements or develop a new survey with you.

Customised surveys

We have a number of off-the-shelf surveys which are available to clients but we can of course design a survey just for you. Customising surveys can be done very quickly online. We can also design a new survey on paper, with your selected content, design amd logos, and dispatch a parcel to you.

Comments about SHEU

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."

"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."

Many thanks to you and your team for turning this around so quickly.
We really appreciate it, and also your extra support with the administration this time.

PSHE Lead Advisor

"We did this last year with Year 8 and 10 and was incredibly useful. It is WELL worth doing and so useful to inform PSHE planning. The safeguarding audit team were delighted that we had done it. The findings are so so interesting.
"The findings are really comprehensive and range from what percentage of year 8 have breakfast in the morning to how many have tried this particular drug, to identity, health and sleep patterns, mental health, citizenship issues....
"It's essential for the PSHE and pastoral curriculum."
