Pupil Wellbeing Survey 2022

Pupil Wellbeing Survey

We will soon be launching the Pupil Wellbeing Survey 2022.

If your school or college hasn’t joined the survey in the past or have missed a survey recently – please consider joining this survey. Any historical data (from 2012 onwards) is available on Pupilinform and new data can be added and compared to this as well as the county. As we continue to work through the difficulties coronavirus has brought it is vital we hear as many voices of our children and young people as possible so we can support all of them to thrive and look forward to positive futures.

What we need you to do

The PWS is commissioned by Gloucestershire County Council and undertaken on our behalf by RM Insight. Schools and FE colleges will receive  an email from RM Insight in October 2021 entitled ‘Gloucestershire Pupil Wellbeing Survey signup for schools and colleges’ so please look out for this. This email will contain a link for schools and colleges to sign up for the 2022 survey on behalf of your education setting and also allow you to review the contact information we have for your school/college.

Invitations were sent via email on Thursday 7th October 2020.

Please contact the survey provider, RM Insight at if you have not received the email invitation.  Schools and colleges should complete the Signup survey by 30th November 2020


The benefits of signing up to the survey

We really hope that you will sign your education setting up to the 2022 survey; this is a FREE survey for all educational settings in Gloucestershire. The intelligence gathered in the survey could provide evidence for your post-coronavirus recovery strategy. The survey asks questions on topics such as school life, mental wellbeing, physical activity and much more.

The PWS results are a robust longitudinal dataset which also includes all data from the Online Pupil Survey prior to 2018. The PWS provides a facility for schools to get information on survey results for their own pupils (the Pupilinform database) and compare their results to the county and other similar schools. It is also used by the County Council and partners to inform a range of activities within Gloucestershire. Recent examples include:

  • modelling the impact of the pandemic on the mental wellbeing of children and young people that will shape the service going forward
  • helping to evaluate commissioned services such as the Restorative Practice Programme and the Active Gloucestershire Daily Mile initiative
  • Investigating inequalities in access to services for pupils by characteristics

The survey will be open during Terms 3 and 4. There will be online training available for the survey in the New Year and for the Pupilinform results database when the new 2022 data is launched.
