This page contains the questionnaires for the primary, secondary and parent/carer surveys for Falkirk and North Lanarkshire. For more information on the process and background of the surveys please see the Families and Professionals pages.
The questionnaires utilise items that are well-established and have been found to be associated with child wellbeing. The scales in the surveys have been used in other reputable surveys with children and we have consulted with teachers as well as experts in the field of child wellbeing in devising the questionnaire. The surveys have been ethically approved and are set up to allow participant’s to easily skip any questions they do not want to answer or opt out of taking part at any point during the survey. Parents are also given the opportunity to opt their child out before the surveys.
The aim of this survey is to gather information of value to local authorities about children’s wellbeing which can be used to inform service improvement planning. The findings will be aggregated to provide a pattern to indicate wellbeing of children across the local authority which will be published as general statistics and will be useful to indicate needs. The individual answers will not be available to the Local Authority for use with individual children or parents – the results are fully anonymised.
