Primary school surveys

A shorter and simpler questionnaire can be designed for primary-age pupils.
You can find the answers to questions like:

  • How much exercise do our pupils take in a typical week?
  • What things about the school do they like, and what do they want to change?

To see what sort of reports you can receive, see our Reports page.

Vulnerable pupils

We often look to see how groups of vulnerable young people are doing relative to their peers in our data sets.

We were recently prompted to look at young people who are young carers, who have special educational needs, who are attending PRUs, and who are in Special Schools.  The numbers from PRUs and Special Schools who completed any of our questionnaires are small, and they may not have answered the same set of questions, so this analysis is rather patchy.

(Our) Senior team were very enthused with the rich source of data provided within the reports (and thought that the analyses including within the appendices section of the main reports were really interesting).
