Guided by the initial and ongoing work with the young people through the Steering Group and Pathfinder Schools, our Questionnaire Advisory Group (QuAG) has finalised the #BeeWell survey that we intend will become the gold standard across England. After all, we believe that young people’s wellbeing improvements can only be made if there is consistency of measurement, allowing for meaningful and standardised comparisons to be made. This consistent measurement is all the more powerful if it is co-created by young people – reflecting what matters to the people we are hoping to support.

Alongside the development of the #BeeWell survey, we have also produced the short and symbol versions of the survey. These surveys have been co-designed in non-mainstream settings, with staff and students, to ensure the surveys were accessible for pupils. You can view and read more about the development of both the short #BeeWell survey and the symbol #BeeWell survey by clicking the links.
The publication of the #BeeWell survey links with the launch of a comprehensive study of children’s wellbeing measurement produced by the What Works Centre for Wellbeing, Children’s Society and the Health Foundation. The study highlights #BeeWell as an example of place-based, integrated wellbeing measurement bringing together academic expertise and youth-led change. You can read more here.
The #BeeWell survey divides into two parts: the Domains and Drivers of Wellbeing.
