For Pupils


Why did we visit your school?

Welcome to WISERD Education. Your school and several other schools all over Wales were chosen to take part in our national study. Our study is asking for your opinions about school. We want to know what matters to you. We can help get your voice, as school pupils in Wales, to be heard; and our study will hopefully contribute to creating some changes for the better. 

What does taking part involve?

We will ask you to fill in questionnaires, and take part in focus groups where we will ask you to discuss topics about your life at school. We have asked your parents’ permission for your continued participation during our study, (it lasts for three years), and for their permission for us to access official school records about you that are held by the government. We really appreciate your participation, and hope you will participate for the whole study; but if at any point you would like to withdraw then please let us know.
