Healthier pupils; better learners.

Pupil Wellbeing Survey 

Cornwall Council Public Health Team and partners have commissioned the Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU) to offer free access to a Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire for pupils in Cornwall in KS2/KS3/KS4, which is available to participating schools online.

  • Results are analysed by SHEU and presented in a report, enabling you to compare your results with other similar schools and the whole of Cornwall too

  • The individual data for your school will provide a detailed insight into the wellbeing of your pupils

  • Data collated at locality/county level from the surveys will inform action plans for joint working between and within organisations involved in improving the health and wellbeing of pupils in schools (one of the four priorities of the Cornwall Education Plan)

How schools have used SHEU survey results:

  • One secondary school saw their SHEU results and immediately signed up to the C-CARD scheme based on the identified needs of their students

  • Primary schools have also responded by planning work to address issues such as hygiene, healthy living and emotional health and wellbeing

When can we take part?

  • The survey will now only be available once every 2 years

Who can take part?

  • Funding is available for Years 4-6 at Primary Level, but it is compulsory that Year 5 take part in order to receive the funding. The Early Years version is available for Years 1-3 at an additional cost

  • Funding is also available for Years 8 and 10 at Secondary Level. Additional year groups can complete the survey but there is an additional cost for this

Past Surveys

You can see a sample survey and the SHEU system on SHEU's website.Or give us a call and we'll send you a paper copy of the survey you are interested in. (or you can download a sample below) 

This work has proved to be tremendously successful and schools tells us they have found the survey results to be very useful in planning their work.

The survey also provides a really useful needs assessment and evaluation tool for your Healthy School award.
