With assuring pupil wellbeing likely to be at the top of your agenda post-lockdown, see examples of pupil questionnaires used to assess overall wellbeing, bullying, physical activity and healthy eating. Use our pupil survey pack to help you write your own.

Overall wellbeing 

Harold Wood Primary School has an emotional wellbeing and behaviour questionnaire that's used to assess pupils' overall wellbeing at school. It covers areas such as: 

  • Support at the school 
  • Pupils' relationships with other pupils 
  • Whether pupils enjoy break times

The Children's Society suggests using questions from their Good Childhood Index to understand how satisfied pupils are with different aspects of their life in and outside of school, as a measure of their overall wellbeing.


The Anti-Bullying Alliance has a wellbeing questionnaire (see the first download at the bottom of the page) that uses a rating system to ask pupils about bullying behaviours and their experiences at school, to assess levels of bullying. 

See the full question list under the heading 'About the questionnaire' at the link above.
