Online pupil survey
The results of the Gloucestershire online pupil survey 2014 have now been evaluated and they give a positive picture of the experience of young people in the county.
More than 23,000 young people from schools, sixth forms and Further Education Colleges took part in the survey and told us what they think about a range of issues - from healthy eating, physical activity and living well to their experiences at school and how safe they feel.
The results of the survey are used to help schools, the council and NHS Gloucestershire to target support in the areas where it is most needed, particularly for the most vulnerable children, including young carers and children in care.
The headlines from the 2014 survey are that around 87% of our young people are confident about their future, three quarters of them do four or more hours of physical activity each week and an increasing number of young people feel confident in how their school deals with bullying.
Schools will have already received their individual results and are encouraged to look carefully at this data and identify any areas for improvement. This data and the evidence of how a school has acted upon it can be used for future Ofsted inspections.
The survey results will also play a key role in schools achieving Gloucestershire Healthy Living and LearningOpens new window (GHLL) status in future - the local replacement for the national Healthy Schools programme.
The programme will provide targeted support to schools to tackle areas they want to focus on improving. A team of Leading Teachers are available to support interventions in schools and colleges to help improve outcomes for our most vulnerable children. The contact details for your assigned Leading Teacher are available from firstname.lastname@example.org
