survey website

The OxWell Student Survey has launched a brand new website to support the incredible work they do. As a collaboration between young people, schools, local authorities, the NHS and the OxWell research team at the University of Oxford’s Department of Psychiatry.

The OxWell Student Survey is a large-scale annual survey designed to measure the wellbeing (health and happiness) of children and young people aged 9–18 years old.

The questions in the survey address a range of issues relevant to wellbeing, including lifestyle and school life. Factors assessed include mental wellbeing, anxiety, indictors of vulnerability such as bullying and loneliness, and risky behaviour, school experience, substance usage, sleep patterns, safety including online safety, protective factors (such as exercise and healthy eating), and attitudes to accessing mental health support.

The research generated by the OxWell survey is now being used at a national, local and school level to help provide valuable insights into what students need to thrive, which factors influence their wellbeing and how they would like to access help if they have mental health difficulties.

By participating in the OxWell Student Survey 2023 you can acquire valuable data about the wellbeing (health and happiness) and needs of your pupils, as well as contributing to our ongoing research in this field. 

BrainWaves are delighted to be using the OxWell Student Survey results to guide the critical thinking elements at the beginning of each lesson.
