Responding to the survey

In late January 2024, the #BeeWell team contacted participating schools to share your #BeeWell Year 3 dashboards. Follow-up support is available from the Child Outcomes Research Consortium. This includes:

  • Individual school one-to-one sessions to understand the dashboard, identify priorities and plan how your school will respond to the data: #BeeWell 2023/24 School Consultation booking
  • New, free workshops co-delivered with a member of your school team to engage the wider school community in the data, including young people, parent/carers and more. Find out more about the offer and let us know in response to this email if you are interested in arranging a session: #BeeWell Schools Offer 2023/24

In March 2023, we released the new #BeeWell GM headline findings on survey results from across Greater Manchester. Find out more and how you can use these findings in your school in this document.


This page provides schools with resources on how to use and respond to your data dashboards.  The school dashboard for 2023/24 can be accessed here (log-in details required):

If your school has not yet completed the #BeeWell survey – take a look here at what your school data dashboard would look like.
