Young People on their own

We're working hard on the production of our once-annual reports following the retirement of David McGeorge last year, but we're realising how much work he used to put in!

But we've compiled all the aggregate data sets, and have produced most of the tables, and have had a peek at what the results are telling us.

Sample sizes:

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:

Comments about SHEU

"Please send an additional copy of our report - it is the most requested and borrowed item in the whole library." Health Promotion Unit

"You have often stood alone against the media who were often looking for the sensational headline. I have noticed an important change: the media now look out for and report very fairly and fully on the reports from the team."

Please could our College be part of the SHEU survey this academic year? We did it in 2016 and 2017 and found it incredibly informative and it helped us shape our PSHE provision.

At the time, the results were very useful and the feedback report very useful and insightful. Significant changes will occur in our schools health and wellbeing provision next year and conducting another survey will certainly help me to ensure I am planning effectively for the needs of our pupils.

"I very much value the contribution the Health Related Behaviour Survey has made to the public health agenda and feel confident it will continue to do so." Tribute from a Director of Public Health to John Balding, presented at his retirement lunch, May 2005

"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

We were all very impressed with the spreadsheet and can see that an incredible amount of work has gone into creating this!

"SHEU data proved the best source of the kind of information we were looking for (...) to provide research support to the National Healthy Schools Programme." 

Department of Health

I think the HRBQ is an absolutely wonderful, informative tool and I am keen to really encourage schools/other relevant partners (as appropriate) to utilise this invaluable data to encourage voice of the child, and subsequently contribute to shaping priorities and services.
