Special Needs and Short Stay Schools

All our surveys have been adapted for use in different settings, like short stay schools (PRUs) and special schools. For example, when conducting a survey across an authority, we often produce versions for special schools and for short stay schools.

We are happy to meet requests to get the questionnaires translated.  [Click on the picture to see a larger version of a page of the primary questionnaire in Polish.]

Our online questionnaire has been signed in British Sign Language.

Pupils with special needs in mainstream schools are likely to need additional time and support to complete the surveys.

Comments about SHEU

"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

(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).

I've just spent a really interesting half an hour reading through our ...survey (report). Always food for thought and a good way to look at how we can improve.

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

"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."
