Wellbeing white paper 2022: academic wellbeing and attitudes to learning of Key Stage 2 pupils following the pandemic
An analysis of academic wellbeing and attitudes to learning in Key Stage 2 pupils at mainstream state schools in England. This study looks at the differences in performance by year group, gender, disadvantage and region.
Key findings include:
- Academic wellbeing has dropped across all dimensions (positivity, motivation, resilience, and self-efficacy) since the pre-pandemic period.
- Pupils in Year 3 have seen the largest reductions in wellbeing.
- The majority of children now feel some vulnerability in self-efficacy.
- Across all year groups, girls feel more positive than boys.
- Across all year groups, boys reported feeling greater self-efficacy than girls.
- Pupils in the North of England gave more satisfactory responses across all dimensions of academic wellbeing.
