Havering's #BeeWell Youth Wellbeing Census
Our wellbeing census takes place from June to July 2023 as part of our commitment to amplify the voice of young people in the borough.
The census is based on Greater Manchester’s #BeeWell programme, an initiative that combines academic expertise with youth-led change to make the wellbeing of young people everybody’s business.
Designed by young people, the #BeeWell survey measures the wellbeing of pupils in secondary schools and the results are used to deliver positive change.
What it involves
- Tailoring the census to Havering’s needs - The #BeeWell survey will be adapted to meet the needs of Havering’s young people, as voiced by young people themselves.
- Completion of the census in schools – The survey will be completed in the summer term 2023 by year 8 and year 10 students.
- Insights and actions – The results of the survey will be shared, and the insights will be used to guide positive changes to improve young people’s wellbeing in the borough.
What this means for schools
A central team will work closely with schools, supporting the delivery of the survey in classrooms across the borough in the summer term.
Schools will receive free, confidential, aggregated feedback, using an online data dashboard.
This feedback will inform and complement the work that schools are already undertaking to support the wellbeing of their pupils.
The programme will also provide free, bespoke support to schools to act on this evidence.
