Support for Pupil Referral Units and Alternative Provisions

To support Pupil Referral Units and Alternative Provisions to deliver the #BeeWell survey, we have put extra support in place.

We know that there are additional barriers to deliver the survey when you have a fluid pupil population, and want to work with you during the Autumn term to ensure you receive the support you need to take part. This includes…


An extended parent/carer opt-out deadline

Whilst other schools are asked to send these in the summer term – due to the fluid student population this can be completed in September. A member of the #BeeWell team will be in touch to arrange when you should send out these forms, to align with when the survey will be delivered.

A more flexible survey window

We recognise how busy the school year is, and the challenges and uncertainties associated with a fluid student population. To account for this, the #BeeWell survey window has been extended to the end of the Autumn term. APs and PRUs can opt to begin their surveys after the half-term break, meaning that the most accurate, up to date information can be used to identify eligible pupils.

A more accessible survey

A short version of the #BeeWell survey, containing 32 items, has been created for non-mainstream school settings (including AP and PRU settings), accounting for a range of abilities and a shorter completion time. This version was developed in consultation with staff and pupils in non-mainstream school settings.

A symbol version

PRUs and APs can also access a symbol version of the #BeeWell survey where appropriate – school staff will be asked to identify which young people this may be suitable for.

Bespoke data sharing agreement

We will work with you to put in place a data sharing agreement, to ensure we have the most up to date pupil information and can provide you with a list of pupil passwords in time for young people to take part in the survey.
