Your school has chosen to participate in the TOK Research Mental Wellbeing Survey. Its purpose is to help the mental wellbeing of pupils and staff in your school community. The information below will help you understand what you will be asked about and how your data will be used. Any information you share with us will be treated with the strictest confidence. Your schools data may be used to help us understand mental wellbeing across Scotland.
What does the TOK Research Mental Wellbeing Survey involve?
You will first be asked to answer a number of questions about your local authority, your school, your gender, your year group/role in school, and then you will be asked to complete the Warwick Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale. This scale is made up of 14 questions that tell us about how you are feeling. There are no right or wrong answers
Do I have to take part?
Although we hope you will take part in this survey it is completely your choice whether you take part or not.
Could taking part in this survey upset me?
Thinking about mental wellbeing can be a positive experience but it may also make you feel upset or uncomfortable. If you are affected you can talk to your teacher, parent/guardian or a trusted adult. If you prefer you could call Childline on 0800 1111
Do my parents know I am taking part in this survey?
Yes, your school has contacted your parents about this survey. We have given them an information form and a form to complete if they do not wish you to take part in the survey.
What happens with my data?
We ask you to share your name as part of this survey. This data is only shared with your school so that they can help to target support for individual pupils if required. Your data will be analysed with the rest of your data from your year group/staff/parents, participant of the same gender and the rest of your school. This will allow us to find the average responses from each of these categories and will allow us to build a picture of the mental wellbeing of your school. Your schools data may be compared to other schools data in a future study.
