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.

"...the most comprehensive health education survey."

Daily Telegraph

"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."

PCT Performance Manager

"You have made a truly significant contribution to health education and health promotion of young people in, not only England, but all over the United Kingdom and beyond." Colleague from NHS Scotland paying tribute to John Balding, presented at his retirement lunch, May 2005

NHS Scotland

"Within the curriculum, we are part of the Healthy Schools programme - and the local, Director of Public Health Award. We cover many facets of health from emotional intelligence to safety education and our very strong, Anti-Bullying and Child Protection programmes. You can imagine our delight when the Local Authority and our school nurse made the following comments after we took part in the regional Schools Health Education Unit Survey: " Head Teacher.
“This was an amazing set of outcomes and really good evidence that (your school) is doing a wonderful job in prioritizing the health and well-being of its pupils … Well done to staff, governors and parents for all your work on this through the Director of Public Health award and other strategies. It is very clear that pupils feel happy, safe and involved at the school and your caring ethos shines through this data.”

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

"...the only question to cause a problem was 'has everyone got a pen?" Supervisor's notes following a school survey

Any comments on specific survey questions that may have caused difficulty?
Pupils at our primary school found the questionnaire very easy to understand and most of them completed the questions in less than 45min.
