In order to help us understand more about how pupils at Heavers Farm are feeling and getting on with each other, we have asked all of our pupils to complete some simple surveys.
The questions ask pupils how they think and feel about themselves and about the way they relate to and behave with their peers. Pupils were also asked about their friendship networks within their classes.
These surveys give an overview of pupil wellbeing and peer relationships within our school community.
The reason behind undertaking the surveys is to ensure at a crucial time, post-covid, that our children are receiving the correct support and to create additional support where needed across the school.
It is unfortunate that young people had such disruption to their lives during the pandemic. Nationally, it has been reported that there has been a sharp increase in mental health and wellbeing symptoms. We want to ensure that our pupils are supported as we come through the other side of this and identified early where issues may arise.
The data from these questionnaires are solely for use within our school and children’s responses are kept fully anonymous.
