About Us

About the survey:

The My Health, My School survey is a pupil perception survey which asks children and young people (CYP) a range of questions on the 4 topics of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), Healthy Eating and Physical Activity which are tailored age-appropriately with year group log-in’s. The survey is available to years 3, 4 (PE in school only), 5, 6, 7, 9 & 11 and Post 16. We also have a SEND survey available soon. This ensures we have a large and valid sample of the voice of our young people in the UK and internationally. This data set can also be compared year on year, as well as to the local authority as a whole e.g. Leeds, and can also be compared between year groups and genders, with resources available to action plan for improvements to the data in certain areas.

We would like to thank all schools and pupils/students who took part in last year’s (2017/18) My Health, My School Survey. We had a huge 17,176 responses from 170 schools, our largest response since the survey began 11 years ago, equating to 40% of the available population of Children and Young People (CYP) in Leeds in years 5, 6, 7, 9 and 11. This provides a vast and representative sample of the health and wellbeing of CYP in Leeds. 

For this year’s survey (2018/19), we have launched Nationally and Internationally!


This year, we have consulted with a range of pupils and students from a number of primary and secondary schools to gain their feedback on what they want from the survey and the website, to ensure that we are reaching our target audience appropriately. We have also consulted with a large cross-section of professionals for each of the specific question areas, as well as the Catholic diocese and professors/researchers from the University of Leeds to ensure that the questions are relevant and comprehensive.
