Measuring

Attitudes to Learning

Questionnaire Name
Description
Key stage

The results from the "attitude to reading" survey for primary schools can be invaluable in helping you to drive and encourage autonomous, positive reading engagement across your whole school, where reading for pleasure is embedded into everyday school life. This survey helps you to learn about a pupil's attitude towards reading and can help you understand what your pupils are really thinking and feeling.

Created in partnership with the School Library Association and the National Literacy Trust, this survey captures information about reading habits, perceptions and attitudes; ultimately enabling you to create a measure of a pupil's reading engagement and enjoyment levels. Here are some of the many ways the results of this survey can be used:

  • Insight into reading, helping you form the basis of a whole-school reading strategy
  • Information to help guide "book stock" choices for your school
  • Identify and help pupils that are in need of extra support but maybe don't want to say
  • Results to help you measure the impact and progress of reading interventions

The Ofsted pupil questionnaire is great way to get the views and opinions of your pupils about all aspects of school life. This questionnaire is useful way of obtaining an overall picture of how things are going in school as well as highlighting any areas that may have been missed. Note that Ofsted usually supply an online version of the questionnaire for completion during an inspection. However, many schools like to run this survey to gather the views of their staff and pupils, even outside of an inspection window.

Research has shown how various types of student subjective well-being are related to positive educational outcomes. Student subjective well-being has been shown to correlate positively with achievement (particularly in primary school students) and feeling accepted and fitting in at school (particularly in secondary school students).

The SSWQ is a 16-item measure for assessing subjective wellbeing of pupils in the school environment. It includes 4 key areas of school life and wellbeing looking deeper into school connectedness and belonging, academic efficacy, joy of learning and educational purpose. School connectedness is linked to levels of anxiety and Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA)

  • School connectedness is defined as feeling cared for by and relating well to others at school;
  • Academic efficacy is defined as appraising one’s academic behaviours as effectively meeting environmental demands;
  • Joy of learning is defined as experiencing positive emotions and cognitions when engaged in academic tasks;
  • Educational purpose is defined as appraising school and academic tasks as important and meaningful.

Subscale scores can be used as standalone wellbeing indicators or summed to create a Overall Student Wellbeing composite scale.
