Frequently Asked Questions

What is BounceTogether?

BounceTogether is an online survey tool, designed for a school environment to help you capture the views, opinions, thoughts and feelings of your pupils.

We are helping the National Literacy Trust capture the data for a number of their annual surveys, with a view of helping them understand the role literacy plays in young peoples lives.

Is there a setup fee?

No! There is no setup fee and you will be able to participate in the National Literacy Survey(s) free of charge.

Do I need to enter payment details?

No! Participation in the survey is absolutely free and you won't be charged anything.

Is there any setup?

There is no setup for your school and BounceTogether, will send everything you need to you to complete the survey and see the results.

How do I get the results?

Using BounceTogether you can see the results as surveys are completed in your school, in real-time.

Your pupils will be completing the survey anonymously so you won't know who has given what answer but you can see the difference holistically between year groups and classes.

How do my pupils complete the survey?

You will be emailed a link that can be shared with the pupils you want to take part. It's really easy to complete it and can be done from home, using a smart device or tablet if they prefer!

What about the data?

The responses from the survey (non-personal data) is shared with our research partners the National Literacy Trust so they can analyse the results across the wider population and share them once the survey has been completed. They do this every year and it often throws up some really interesting results.

We securely host the data on our platform until the survey is completed. You can learn more about our GDPR compliance here.
