Pupils over the four focus groups were asked:

  • What do pupils need to do well in school?
  • What would stop pupils doing well in schools? and
  • How do you think pupils could be helped so that they can learn better?

Some of the replies for ‘what would stop you doing will at school’ for example, included:

  • Bullying
  • Family problems
  • Bad behaviour
  • Feeling sad
  • Distractions – social media, mobile phones etc

The Panel will be meeting again this week to discuss the Swansea Healthy Schools Initiative.
