TeenCovidLife Survey

By | Pupils, School news | No Comments
“Montrose Academy has recently signed up to be a SHINE school.  Generation Scotland is a research team based at the University of Edinburgh and SHINE is a network of 194 Scottish Schools who are interested in using data to support improvements in health and wellbeing.  SHINE is looking to gather data on young people (aged 12 -17 yrs) in Scotland.  They are inviting young people to share their views on how the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are impacting their lives. Many surveys have already been conducted with adults to inform​ governments and policymakers – SHINE is inviting this generation to make​ their voices heard.  As a school, we would like all pupils to complete this survey by the end of this week.  The closing date is Tuesday 30th June.  If we have enough pupils completing the survey, we will receive a report based on the pupils’ answers in August.  This information will allow us to learn more about how they have been affected by COVID-19 and what support mechanisms /interventions we can put in place in order to support as many of them as we can moving forward.  We recognise that pupils’ mental and emotional wellbeing are likely to have been affected, but we would like to get more information from them.  We have posted information relating to this survey, and links to the survey, in your child’s Teams.  We are also attaching it below so you are able to read the information and perhaps support them in completing it.  We ask you to please encourage your child/ren to complete it as honestly as possible.  We will be posting reminders all week.  If anyone has any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s PT PCS or House Head to discuss these.
The survey may take 15-20 minutes to complete. It is anonymous. As a school if we get enough completed we receive a general report based on the information everyone has given. If not enough people complete it, we don’t receive any feedback.  The more we know about how life has been for Montrose Academy pupils the better we can support your son/daughter in the future.
