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.

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