Wellbeing survey 2020/2021
All of the children in school will be provided with the opportunity to complete the 'Wellbeing survey'
which has been developed and managed by
the Health & Wellbeing Service (Leeds City Council).
This survey is split into three versions for primary, secondary and post 16 settings, and has been created in response to the pandemic, and its effect on school life for pupils. It is entirely optional but we are keen to hear from as many of our children as possible, as it is a useful tool for helping us to understand how we can better support our pupils as they continue to re-integrate into education. It will also highlight where our school is performing well.
The survery asks pupils about life during and after the Coronavirus lock down period, their opinons about what has worked well in terms of their Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and wellbeing, and what support has been provided and taken from school, when times have been difficult.
KS2 children will complete it during class time, after Christmas, on individual computers and will be supported by a member of school staff who can answer any questions they may have. Early years and KS1 children will be completing this at home with the help of parents. As the survey is confidential and anonymous
, your child will not
be asked to give their name, date of birth or address at any stage during the survey. This also means that it will not be possible for anyone, including any member of the school or Leeds City Council, to identify which child gave any of the information.
How will the results be used?
The results will be used by the individual school (schools will only have access to their own data), the School Nursing Service and Leeds City Council. We might use words provided in pupil answers on our website, social media and in reports; for example, "I found the online tutoring helped me to understand my work better" (Year 7 pupil, Cardiff).
In addition, the survey may also be shared with organisations, such as the Univeristy of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University. Local authority wide data (an average of all schools in a particular local authority) may also be shared between these organisations, which does not link any individual school to the data.
Will my child's survey results be secure?
For all pupils who take part, data is private and anonymous. We will comply fully with all data protection legislation. This means we will keep your child's data safe and secure, now and in the future.
For those parents who do not wish for their child to complete this survey, there has been a letter sent home containing details of how you can communicate this to the class teacher, before they complete the survey.
Health & Well-being
We have always had health & well-being as one of our main priorities at Pool C of E and this is especially so with the current situation regarding Covid-19. We are particulary focusing on the children's mental health and will be monitoring this closely as the children return to school.
We will be taking part in daily health & well-being sessions where children can voice their concerns about returning to school and any anxious feelings that they might have. Each child will have access to a 'mood board' which we will be discussing with the children as they return. This will be a way that children can communicate quickly to a member of staff if they are not feeling happy, or are struggling in any way.
We will be continuing to use our long term plans of health & well-being which can be found below. We will also be incorporating resources used from Mindmate, 'You, Me and PSHE' and Lifewise.
