About Us

About the survey:

The My Health, My School survey is a pupil perception survey that asks children and young people a range of questions under ten key themes: All About Me, Healthy Eating, Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH), Gambling, Physical Activity and Sport, Play, PE in School, Drugs Alcohol & Tobacco, Sexual Health and My School/College. Each are tailored age-appropriately with year group log-ins. The survey is available to years 3, 4 (PE in school only), 5, 6, 7, 9 & 11, Post 16 and there are SEND surveys for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. This ensures we have a large amount of data capturing the perceptions of our children and young people, both in the UK and beyond. 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 have taken part in My Health, My School Survey. Over the last 3 years we have averaged over 17,595 responses from an average of 159 schools in Leeds. The survey will continue in 2023-24, and we will strive to rebuild a vast and representative sample of data for the Health & Wellbeing of children and young people in Leeds and nationally. 

From 2018-19 we launched Nationally and Internationally!


In 2022/23 we consulted with a range of pupils and students from a number of primary and secondary schools to gain their feedback on what they wanted 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, the Church of England Diocese and professors/researchers from the University of Leeds to ensure that the questions are relevant and comprehensive.

For 2024, we are now consulting with special schools and settings to update and enhance our SEND surveys.
