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... During the Covid-19 lockdowns, students were able to complete the survey from wherever they were learning, and we were able to use the RfL scores to identify and risk-assess students who required extra pastoral support while at home.

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.

Understand more about your pupils’
Readiness for Learning

Pupil Perceptions is a simple tool that can help you to:

Readiness for Learning

Readiness for Learning (RfL) is a single score calculated from the responses of each child, providing an overall indication of their well-being 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.

Target support where it is needed

Using individual pupils’ RfL Scores, RfL Indices can then be calculated for a wide selection of groups, and combinations of groups. This allows you to look at possible links between RfL and, for example:

By comparing the RfL Indices of different groups of pupils, schools can build up a detailed picture of vulnerable groups, the problems that they face and how targeted interventions could help.

To get a detailed picture of what is possible, see the sample spreadsheets on the Pricing and samples page.
