Pupils’ Attitudinal Survey Analysis – March 2017

The success of a child’s educational experience is heavily determined by the attitudes that they bring to their learning, their sense of aspiration and the feelings they have about their place in the broader social context of the school.

As a result, this term pupils from Year 2 to Year 6 completed our annual comprehensive questionnaire about their attitudes towards learning and school. The sample of pupils was very large. Children in Year 2 responded to 27 questions, whilst those in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 answered 50. You will find more details about the types of questions below.

Following analysis and comparison with the same survey taken last spring, the results show that our pupils have an increasingly ‘high satisfaction with their school experience’ when compared to other schools nationally. In addition they show further improvements since last spring’s survey analysis. The report also concluded that this ‘acts as evidence of the success of the school’s existing programmes’.

Please note that this survey is just one of the many ways we constantly listen to and seek pupil’s views and feelings.

All children answered questions about:
Feelings about the school – measuring pupils’ sense of well-being, safety and comfort in school.
Preparedness for learning – measures pupils’ perceptions of their behaviour and attitude in learning situations (including metacognitive skills).
Learner self-worth – measures how positive and confident children feel about themselves as learners (including perseverance and enjoyment of learning).
Response to learning – measures pupils’ perceptions of the appropriateness of the level of difficulty of work they are asked to complete.

Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 also responded to questions about:
Attitudes to teachers – measures students’ perceptions of their relationships with teachers.
General work ethic – measures students’ attitudes and responses to work in general.
Confidence in learning – measures students’ confidence in approaching and dealing with learning and perseverance when presented with challenging tasks.
Attitudes to attendance – measures students’ attitudes to attendance at school.
Response to curriculum demands – measures students’ perceptions of the appropriateness of the level of difficulty of work they are asked to complete.
