About the survey
The Jersey Children and Young People’s survey takes place every 2 years. All pupils in Year 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12, including home-schooled pupils, will be given the opportunity to take part in the survey during school time in the Autumn Term.
The survey is voluntary to complete and is anonymous. Statistics Jersey do not ask for or publish any identifying information (such as name or address).
The results from the survey will allow for a better understanding of life from children’s perspectives. Their views will help decision-making for the services provided to children and ensure adequate provision in areas such as mental health, sport and exercise, and sexual health.
The survey is run independently by Statistics Jersey and includes topics suggested from a range of stakeholders across government. All questions are reviewed by an independent ethics committee to ensure that they are suitable and age appropriate
The language of the question set has been carefully considered to maximise understanding and schools will have provisions for students with additional learning requirements. Students can choose to complete the online survey in Polish or Portuguese.
The survey has been run since 1998, enabling changes in behaviours and attitudes to be monitored over time.
