Student Well-being Survey

As pupils begin to return to school in greater numbers from September, we are keen to understand the impact of this challenging period, and also to understand how pupils are feeling and responding to the present situation so that we can provide the support they need.

To assist this, we will be sending out a survey to pupils from 14/09/20, covering areas such as their engagement with learning during this period and their broader wellbeing. Most pupils will complete this at school. However should your child need to complete at home, we would really appreciate your support in encouraging your child to do so, as it will be tremendously helpful for ensuring that we can provide the best support for your child as possible.

For further information please read the letter to parents provided below.
