Following the return of all pupils into schools across the UK, many schools and academies are looking at where to start when capturing wellbeing data on pupils, staff or parents. Bounce Together (a platform for measuring and monitoring physical and mental wellbeing and the attitudes of a school’s community), are offering schools a FREE wellbeing survey for pupils, staff or parents. Schools are also entitled to a free 30-minute slot to go through their individual survey report and results.
Over 2,500 people have taken the surveys so far, and the results are indicative of how children and adults alike have been struggling with their wellbeing in these unprecedented times. In response to “I’ve been feeling cheerful about things” and “I think good things will happen in my life”, almost 20% and 15% respectively of children are answering “never” or “not much of the time”. For staff, over 25% have responded they would rate their overall mental health as bad or very bad.
