Annual Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey

2021 Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey

The Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey will run from 23 August to 17 September 2021. 

Student resources have been developed to support student participation and engagement in the Wellbeing Survey. The Student Wellbeing Booklet is aimed at students Years 4 – 8, and the Postcards are designed for students in Years 9 – 12. A classroom set of these resources will be delivered to schools in June 2021. Orders for these resources can be placed here and will close 27 July 2021.

Principals are encouraged to nominate someone within their school/college to coordinate the administration of the survey for students Years 4 to 12. 

Key documents and resources (including pre-survey information webinars) for DoE staff to administer the survey in their school can be found on the Student Wellbeing Canvas page.

2020 Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey

The 2020 Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey commenced on 10 March 2020 and closed 3 April 2020. 15 028 students completed the survey at that time.

During the course of the four-week survey period, the COVID-19 crisis had a major impact on student’s attendance at school, which made it challenging for some schools to complete the survey.

The survey ran again from 24 August to 18 September 2020. 23 906 students completed the survey at that time.

Overall, the state level data (responses across all schools/year levels) indicates that results remain relatively stable with the same time last year.

The survey provides valuable data on the wellbeing of our students and will inform our approaches to student wellbeing at a school and system level.

Rumble’s Quest is an optional early years wellbeing survey that schools can use to survey students in Years 1 – 3. For more information click here.

2018-2021 Child and Student Wellbeing Strategy

The Child and Student Wellbeing Strategy commits to the development of valid and reliable measures of child and student wellbeing to inform future effort and planning.

This is a universal approach to wellbeing in the student voice for all students.

All students in Years 4 – 12 will undertake the Student Wellbeing and Engagement Survey annually.
