Wellbeing Barometer 2024: Secondary

Thank you for taking a few moments to complete the survey below.

Although you may recognise the questions as being similar to last year's, the Wellbeing Barometer survey is a longitudinal study that will assist your school over time. It will help detect any changes that may occur. Ultimately, this information will help support families and provide important information to your school regarding the nature and extent of your concerns and determine how best they can support you.

Responses to all survey questions remain anonymous and are only reported on an aggregated basis. You are asked to base your responses on observations made in the last 12 months.

Should this survey raise any specific concerns you wish to discuss in relation to your child, please contact a wellbeing team member at your school.
