  • Identify issues that children with social workers face
  • Compare results against national data to highlight gaps

Readiness for Learning score

Readiness for Learning (RfL) is a single score calculated from the responses of each child, providing an overall indication of their wellbeing and likely preparedness for academic progress. RfL is designed to give you a quick way to identify pupils who may require intervention, and provide a convenient single figure that can be set against data on attendance, attainment, background and other issues.

Using this system, we were able to collect data that started to give us some answers that we'd never ever seen before from our students. The reports have been very useful. The quality is excellent, information is very accessible and all staff have been able to use the data very quickly.

Easy to use

Completed by almost 500,000 pupils to date. Conduct the survey efficiently online, no installation required.

In-depth analysis and comparison

By comparing the RfL Indices of different groups of pupils (by gender, ethnic groups, attendance levels, FSM pupils, children in care and special educational needs), schools can build up a detailed picture of vulnerable groups, the problems that they face and how targeted interventions could help.

How it works

1. Receive a list of logins: only your school will be able to match them to individual pupils.

2. Distribute logins to each pupil and direct them to the survey, where they can log in and complete their responses.

3. The survey should take 15-25 minutes to complete.

4. Receive data, reports and analysis when the survey is completed.

This programme provides a way of identifying why children were not making progress, identifying their barriers to learning, so we can address them and help them to overcome them.

At the Park Academies Trust, we have used Pupil Perceptions to screen all students' views of their own mental health and wellbeing. This has enabled us to tailor the curriculum according to particular needs that have arisen in the community.
