Topics normally include:

* Personal background

* Physical activity
* Physical health & hygiene
* Safety (accidents, online safety)
* Bullying
* Smoking, alcohol, illegal drugs
* Relationships and Sexual Health
* Emotional Health and Well-being

The results are an ideal base for planning towards a better curriculum and a healthier school.

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.

"I would like to say that this survey was very useful and made me realise things about PE and health that I had never realised before......Food at school is groovy, especially if your school does Jamie Olivers School Dinners. Viva apples and thanks for the survey." Female pupil, 13 yrs old

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

"One year (following the SHEU survey) responses from our Year 4 cohort caused us concern, so we put in place a number of team building, motivational projects. We then assessed their effectiveness by requesting the SHEU questionnaires for these pupils as Year 5's."

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.

"Thanks for presenting the survey to local schools this morning, I just wanted to thank you for such interesting and thought-provoking information.  
I’m really glad we were able to take part - the information (particularly headline data and differences) will support us to have some really interesting questions with the Year group as a whole about the sense they’re making of this; what they think it might mean in terms of changes they might make, and what they need to support them in this."
