To tackle bullying effectively it’s crucial that the voices of children and Young People are heard; last year over 18,000 pupils from across the county shared their views and experiences, making our Kent based survey the largest in the UK by far.
Completion of the survey is free and confidential and will provide Kent schools with detailed analysis of how safe pupils feel in school and the impact of any anti-bullying measures put in place. The Primary and Secondary surveys include an extended range of questions to help you tackle online safety and bulling.Both the Primary and Secondary age surveys capture data about pupil’s online behaviour and experiences – so that schools can help them manage the risks they face. Many of the questions asked in each survey closely match several aspects of the current Ofsted inspection framework therefore the evidence and subsequent analysis will provide schools with data to support the school inspection process especially around behaviour, safeguarding and e-Safety.
Younger Children’s: available for all pupils in Years R, 1, 2 and 3 to complete
Primary: available for all pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 to complete.
Secondary: available for all pupils in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 to complete.
For the most accurate and comprehensive analysis it is recommended that schools aim to get at least 50% of the current pupil cohort to complete the survey.
