Wellbeing Survey 2023

10th November 2023

In October 2023 we gave the children in Years 1 and 2 a ‘Wellbeing Survey’ as part of our Wellbeing Week activities. 

Since we opened in 2021, we have prioritised researching and designing the best possible curriculum for our children. We use Jigsaw and the PSHE Association as schemes of work and we have embedded the Zones of Regulation, creating a robust Emotional Health curriculum alongside other subjects such as P4C and Science. Wellbeing is a major priority within Pre-prep, ensuring that all of our children are happy and healthy so they can fully embrace their learning.

Using the Bounce Together platform we assigned the children in Years 1 and 2 a ‘Wellbeing Survey’. When we introduced the survey to our pupils, we encouraged them to express their thoughts and feelings in an honest way, reassuring them that there are no right or wrong answers. 

Evaluating overall wellbeing provides us with a comprehensive view of our pupils’ physical, emotional, and social health. Understanding general wellbeing enables us as a school to develop targeted initiatives that support pupils’ holistic development, promoting a thriving school community.  

The Pastoral Team and class teachers analyse the data and where we think appropriate identify target pupils, this may involve running individual interventions where we monitor progress over time. Where there are any concerns, our fabulous pastoral team are quick to step in to monitor and support.

106 pupils completed the KINDL (Kiddy) survey. It is split into the following 6 sub-domains: 

Physical wellbeing

Emotional wellbeing

Self esteem

Family

Friends

Everyday functioning

 

Key results:

  • 55% of our children reported that they had fun and laughed a lot during the past week ‘very often’. 
  • 76% of children said that they had been playing with their friends ‘very often’.
  • At the time of the survey 76% of children reported that they had enjoyed school ‘very often’. 
  • 39% of children said that ‘sometimes’ coped with the work set and 54% said that they coped very well.
