Health and Wellbeing Survey

20th November 2017

Dear Parent/Carer,

Re: Northumberland Pupil Health and Wellbeing Survey 2017

Our school has agreed to participate in a very important Health and Wellbeing Survey, this will 
support the work of Public Health and Children’s Services within the Local Authority and we stand to benefit substantially through our participation in the survey.

The survey data in schools may prompt review of the curriculum including:

As a starting point for a discussion in classroom activities
As a guide in the choice of resources
As a prompt for appropriate timing of courses
As a beginning for further enquiry to strengthen existing programmes e.g. in PE
As a starting point for discussions between parents and schools

Participating and using the results will help us ensure we continue to provide a health promoting 
environment for all young people.

Questions will cover a range of health behaviours, for example, emotional health and wellbeing, health eating and exercise, relationships, social media.

Both the Local Authority and the school find the content of the survey acceptable. 
Each survey is anonymous and confidential and no pupil will be identified when the data is returned to our school.

I hope you will agree with us that this is an exercise in which we wish to co-operate fully. I will 
assume you approve unless I hear otherwise and I look forward to working with you in planning 
Improved health promotion for our pupils.

As part of the survey it would be helpful if your son/daughter knows the first part of their postcode i.e. NE61, (this will be used only for drawing maps of results in the area, your house will not be 
identified).

The survey will be carried out in the next few weeks.

Yours sincerely

Miss C Haslam
