Pupils invited to complete emotional health and wellbeing survey

Pupils will be invited to take part in a regular survey designed to help schools improve the health and wellbeing of their children.

This year’s Health Related Behaviour Survey, commissioned by the City of Wolverhampton Council, is focused on emotional health and wellbeing.

There are age-appropriate surveys for children and young people from Key Stage 1-4, and adapted questionnaires for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Surveys are anonymous, take around 20 minutes and carried out online in schools and other educational settings.

Nearly 8,000 pupils from 56 schools and other settings took part in the survey last year, with each school provided with a bespoke report about their children which they could the act upon.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Adults and Wellbeing, said: "It is vitally important for we and our schools understand the views and experiences of our children and young people to ensure they live healthily and can thrive.

"We encourage schools to complete this survey, and to use the results to identify need and priorities to help improve the health and wellbeing of their pupils.

"It can give them a baseline to measure progress for any initiatives that they put in place and help to inform curriculum planning and in developing whole school approaches to themes such as physical activity, healthy eating and emotional wellbeing.

"We will also use the survey data to work collaboratively with schools and our wider partners to impact on the key challenges we have in our city and make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people."

The survey will launch on Monday 5 June, 2023, and Councillor Chris Burden, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education, added: "This will be the 10th time that we have carried out this survey and this is very much down to the strong partnerships that we have with education providers in the city.

“Due to the rich data we are getting, we have agreed that we will carry out a Health Related Behaviour Survey every two years, with a shorter thematic survey in between, including this year’s focusing emotional health and wellbeing.”
