Primary Schools Attitude Survey

The St Mary’s Centre works with the Church in Wales to conduct an annual Primary Schools Attitude Survey within Church in Wales schools across the Province. The survey profiles the religious attitudes and spiritual health of pupils and this supports the professional assessment of church schools. Of particular significance is the scope of the survey, which provides opportunity for a wide-range of analyses to be conducted in this sector as well as individual annual reports to all participating schools.

The survey has been developed by members of the St Mary’s Centre Faculty, who are internationally-recognised experts in the field of Christian education and young people: Professor Leslie Francis, Professor David Lankshear, and Professor John Fisher, in close association with the Revd Canon Robert Townsend and the Revd Edwin Counsell of the Church in Wales.
