Young People into 2011

Twenty fifth year of data about Young People

An example staff survey

We carried out a customised staff survey recently and this document explains the approach.

All staff were invited to take part in a well-being survey.  The questions were devised by the school with our advice on wording and layout.

The survey included questions on:

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:

Appendix

The policy background

This appendix pulls together the principal recommendations from a variety of government documents relevant to PSHEE in schools.

Since the formation of the new Government in May 2010, the importance of these documents has been eclipsed, but we are happy to provide this file.

Home-made online surveys can make a monkey of us all

I expect you are familiar with the admonishment from TV programmes, "Don't try this at home!".  What you are watching is for professionals, who know what they are doing, but if you try it, you might make a mess of it, and that is dangerous.  If you're watching Mythbusters or Brainiac, making a mess of it might involve some nasty burns at the very least.  But what about survey work, surely that's harmless enough?  Well, let me

Inequalities and health behaviours

Consultants, I believe, are fond of saying, "If you can't measure it, you can't manage it," and I have a lot of sympathy with that view. So, while Government target-setting may be reduced, the need for recent, local figures is not.

“We’re very happy..."

“We’re very happy to commission another survey from you. Our colleagues in School Improvement are dead keen to work with us on this” said a Local Authority Senior Adviser recently. "During our last LA Inspection, we were flagged from our Tellus data as having a bullying problem. We could demonstrate with our SHEU data -- which had a much better sample size and coverage of the authority -- that we did not have the problem they suggested. The Inspectors went away happy and we are definitely surveying again with SHEU.”

Some clients we are working with are starting to re-charge some or all of the survey costs to their schools.
