2017 Norfolk Children and Young People Health and Wellbeing Survey

The Norfolk Children and Young People’s Health and Wellbeing Survey (formerly known as the Health Related Behaviour Survey) will be repeated in October 2017. It is being funded in partnership by the Public Health department of NCC and the NSCB.

The survey has been developed in partnership with a wide variety of stakeholders including education and the Police and we have consulted with young people about the content.

Every participating school will receive a personalised report of their data, with national and county level comparisons, which can be used to demonstrate how the views of children and young people are heard and acted upon as well as enabling staff to better respond to students’ needs.

If you would like to know what your pupils think and feel about a wide variety of health and wellbeing topics – and to have a clear way of benchmarking this for Ofsted – please contact hrbs@norfolk.gov.uk for more information or telephone Carolyn Watts on 07824 528990. Participation in the survey will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
