 About the survey

We’re asking young people aged 9-16 to tell us about their experiences of Coronavirus and how lockdown has affected the way they feel and behave. This will help Kirklees Council and schools plan how much (and what type of) support young people may need, and will enable schools to better prepare for all pupils returning in the new school year. All questions are optional; children can leave out any question they don’t want to answer. The information given will not allow identification of individuals. Data gathered through the survey will be held as long as necessary to carry out a full analysis of the findings. The survey asks for the following information:

  • Age, school year, which area of Kirklees they live, whether the child has been going to school during lockdown
  • How young people were feeling at the beginning of lockdown and more recently
  • Whether they have been doing a range of activities more or less often
  • Any help they have had to make them feel better during lockdown
  • The important issues and concerns about going back to school in September
  • General information about gender, ethnicity, special educational need and caring responsibilities

The survey will run until the end of July 2020, and we hope to publish some summary findings from the survey in August. A link to the report will be added here when available.
