LBRUT carried out a survey amongst young people in its schools regarding their health and well-being. There were statistically significant - and pleasing - differences between the responses of RPA students and the average of the rest of the Richmond secondary schools in a number of areas:

  • Far lower experiences of ‘negative behaviours’, listed as being: teased/made fun of; called nasty names; mobile bullied; email bullied; internet bullied; pushed/hit for no reason; threatened; threatened for money; ganged up on; belongings taken or broken; racist comments or behaviour; nasty things said about family; rumours spread; left out of groups
  • Far lower incidence of being pushed or hit in the last month
  • Feeling the school dealt with any bullying well
  • High level of self esteem and less worried about what others think of them
  • Ability to do activities because others are available to do them together

We were very pleased to read that our students feel safe in our school and that we deal with incidents effectively.  The results of the full survey (which had over 100 questions covering a wide range of social and domestic areas too) have been shared with Year Leaders who will address what they can; for example, we feel we need to do more around encouraging students to eat a healthy breakfast.
