Flyer and Factsheet
Following the recent parent/carer wellbeing questionnaire a number of questions have arisen. We hope the flyer and factsheet below will help answer these questions and explain a bit more about the Wellbeing Award and why we are working towards achieving it.
Parent/Carer and Pupil Evaluation Surveys
In order to make sure that we improve the support we offer, we wanted to understand how well we are currently supporting the emotional wellbeing of our pupils. For this reason, we invited pupils at our school to complete an anonymous survey.
Year 2 to Year 6 accessed an online survey. Year F and Year 1 pupils did the survey in small groups through discussion. Therefore they did not complete the online survey, however we still felt it was important to collect their thoughts and viewpoints.
In order to prepare our action plan at the start of our journey, we also asked the parents to complete an evaluation survey to provide us with greater context of the wider picture.
Parent Evaluation Survey
Thank you so much to everyone who completed the recent Parent Evaluation Survey,
Your responses will be vital for preparing our action plan; once this has been has been created we will share this with you.
