Benefits for schools

The SEW Survey provides schools with information about their student population (whole school, specific year levels, targeted groups) which can be used to direct planning and problem-solving efforts.

Benefits for schools include:

  • Results enable schools to identify the social and emotional needs of their students.
  • Data from the report helps inform development of ‘student wellbeing policies’.
  • Results allow staff to assess the effectiveness of intervention programs and assist them to target resourcing to specific areas of need.
  • The survey allows schools to report on student wellbeing in mission statements and strategic plans.
  • Results can assist schools to provide parents, both current and prospective, and communities with an independent assessment of the schools ability to provide for and enhance students’ wellbeing
