Remote learning survey results


Over 85 per cent of Powys pupils received live online lessons from their school during January, the findings of a county council survey have revealed.


3,422 parents / guardian and pupils completed a short remote learning survey that was carried out by Powys County Council. Respondents gave their views while school in county provided online learning due to the Coronavirus pandemic.


The key findings of the survey were:


  • 93 per cent of parents and pupils said that they had engaged fully with a range of learning set by their school

  • 88 per cent of pupils and parents had access to devices for online learning from home, and 11 % had to share a device

  • 86 per cent of parent and pupils reported that they had received live lessons from school

  • 85 per cent of parents and pupils agreed that their school provided them with regular feedback on their work

  • 63 per cent of respondents accessed lessons through a laptop while 15 per cent accessed lessons through an iPad or an equivalent device

  • 56 per cent of parents and pupils felt they had received the right amount of support, learning activities and lessons from their school while eight per cent felt that they had received it most of the time

  • 10 per cent of parents and pupils felt that they didn’t receive the right amount of support, learning activities and lessons from their school while 26 per cent felt pupils had received it part of the time

  • Nearly all (97%) parents or pupils agreed that they could contact their school if there was a problem.


77 per cent of the responses were from parents / guardians with the remaining responses from pupils. 54 per cent of the responses were from primary-aged pupils or their parents / guardians with 46 per cent from the secondary phase.


Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Education and Property, said: “I’d like to thank the pupils and parents / guardians who took the time to take part in this survey and give us their views.


“It is pleasing to see that 90 per cent of respondents felt well supported by their school through regular contact and that 85 per cent of pupils were provided with regular feedback on their school work.


“Although the findings of this survey are pleasing, we won’t be complacent. The results will help us to identify what further support is required for all our schools to ensure learners benefit fully from online learning while they are away from their classrooms.”


What is coronavirus?

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China in December 2019.

What we are currently doing?

To help stop the spread of germs and bugs you may have noticed we have introduced more frequent hand washing in school. In addition we have tissues and hand sanitiser in each classroom and we have ordered hands free sanitiser spensors for school.

Preventing spread of infection

  • washing your hands often for at least 20 seconds  - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if hand washing facilities are not available. 

  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with un washed hands. 

  • pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:​

    • on arrival at school

    • after using the toilet

    • after breaks and sporting activities

    • before eating any food, including snacks
