Coronavirus and me: nationwide survey of children and young people

15th May 2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

The Children’s Commissioner has now launched a survey for children and young people. This survey helps children and young people to tell Welsh Government how they’ve felt about lockdown: how it’s impacted on their health; any worries they’ve had; how they think it might affect their education; and also any positives they’ve had from it. It’s a joint survey from the Welsh Government, the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Youth Parliament for Wales / Senedd Ieuenctid Cymru and Children in Wales.

It will help Government to respond in the best way to the situation as it develops, and to inform how they work with and talk to children and young people during this crisis and beyond. We need your help to ensure that as many children as possible have a chance to have their say.

We’d expect it to take pupils 15 minutes to complete and they can do it on any device by following the link https://www.childcomwales.org.uk/coronavirusandme. It is open for just 2 weeks and closes on the 27th May 2020.

Please note that the survey makes clear where children can seek help if they are affected by any of the topics in the survey. Do not hesitate to contact the school as we will continue to support the wellbeing of all our pupils.

We wish to thank you for your patience and continued support during this unprecedented time.

Yours sincerely,

Miss. R. Thomas
Assistant Headteacher
