Education Survey & Research Service

The Pupil Survey

.

The secondary pupil survey focuses on the views of pupils about the experiences they receive in schools; their perceptions of the quality of those experiences, their relationship with teachers and peers, their awareness of their parents/carers’ support for their education, and the degree to which they are prepared to commit themselves to the school’s purposes. It examines the way in which pupil attitude varies according to their age and gender.  

I think this questionnaire is a very good idea because it gives pupils a chance to express their thoughts more easily and thoroughly about what we think of the school in general. (Y9 Female)

.

I think this sheet is interesting; I could express my feelings but no-one knows who I am so I can tell the truth. (Y10 Male)

.

I love the way that our school offers us opportunities to voice our opinions and I hope that continues. (Y10 Female)

.

This survey is a good one because it asks you what no one else would.  I hope the school will benefit from it and I hope other schools do as well. (Y10 Male)

 .

The idea for this survey is brilliant and hopefully the school will take on board what we have said. (Y11 Female)

.

I enjoyed completing your survey and am most pleased that pupils’ values are taken into account.  I believe the school can learn and improve from these questionnaires, to become one of the great schools in the country. (Y11 Male)

​​Pupil comments

.

I think you should have more of these things so you can think of what you want to change in the school. (Y8 Female)

.

This questionnaire is a good way to get the pupils’ views across anonymously (Year 10 Female)

.

There should be constant surveys like this once every term to check for school improvements. (Year 8 Male)

.

We should be asked our opinion more often.  (Y8 Female)

  .

This survey really made me feel sort of nice telling people about how I feel towards school and what goes on during the school hours. (Y8 Female)

.

I feel it was not only useful to you for your survey but it was useful to me.  It made me look at my school life and think about it more than I would usually.  (Year 9 Male)
