New S1 Survey Results

Our new S1 pupils recently took part in an online survey conducted by CEM (Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring) at Durham University. The purpose of this survey was to see how well our new S1 were settling in at high school.

We are delighted to say that the results show our new pupils have settled in extremely well and are happy to have joined us at St. Benedict's High!


Click below to download a pdf of the survey results. It makes for very good reading!


S1 Induction Report


Results Explained:


The graphs illustrate how the questionnaire responses of our pupils differ when compared to all pupils from all schools who took part in the survey.


On each graph:

the number on the left hand side of the graph corresponds to the percentage of our pupils who fell into a certain category according to their responses.

the number on the right hand side of the graph represents the 'overall average' percentage of the whole national sample that responded to the items as indicated.

the yellow shaded background on the graph makes the 'overall average' percentages easy to visualise.

the bar graph allows us to visually compare our school's data with the 'background' national data.

blue bars indicate where our data is significantly different to that of the 'background' national data - otherwise the bars are orange.

In short, a school's data is shown in the foreground as a bar graph which is plotted against a background of the average data for the whole national sample.
