Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire (HRBQ)

Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire (HRBQ)

15 Mar 2017

Camden is once again funding the HRBQ for all secondary schools and 30 primary schools any time between March-June 2017 and it’s not too late to let us know if you would like your school to participate!

What is the HRBQ?

It’s an anonymous questionnaire with a primary version for Year 6 or Year 5 and Year 6 and a secondary version for Year 8 and Year 10 that covers key health and wellbeing topics, including emotions and how children feel, bullying and feeling safe, physical activity and diet, smoking, alcohol and drugs, relationships, internet use and keeping safe.

Secondary schools have been completing the questionnaire every 2 years since 2002 and 2015 was the first time primary schools have been involved

It can be completed on line (preferably) or on paper and takes between 40 minutes and 1 hour.


The survey will give schools

  • A report of the results (school level) with a comparison against the aggregate Camden data and the national reference sample
  • If the school completed the HRBQ in 2015 they will have data to compare and see progress/trends
  • Comprehensive data about the health and wellbeing needs of pupils and hear their views and perceptions.
  • The results will give schools information including how useful pupils view lessons related to health and wellbeing eg SRE, cooking and nutrition, on line safety, what food choices they are making, how much physical activity they are doing, how they are engaging with social media, whether they have experienced bullying and what types of bullying, % that have low self esteem and resilience and what pupils are worrying about
  • The results will help inform and plan curriculum, interventions, policies and practices, particularly for PSHE, PE and physical activity, healthy eating, online safety, bullying prevention and mental and emotional health.
  • Anonymised ranking charts for key questions which show where schools are ranked in relation to other Camden schools.

The data will also help the Council better understand the health needs of children and improve its services and support to schools, children and families.

It is FREE to participate. PSHE Coordinators will have recently received a registration form, the survey, a fact sheet about the questionnaire and an example letter to send to parents.
