Thriving Lives Families Survey Tool

A project funded to develop an online survey tool which schools will be able to use to secure Service children’s and families’ voices, and inform their Thriving Lives Toolkit self-assessment. The survey tool will help schools improve their understanding of, and support for, their Service children.


  • Schools develop a thorough understanding of how the toolkit’s seven principles are implemented within their school;
  • Schools can easily identify and evidence where their work with Service children is effective, and where/how this could be developed further;
  • Schools are able to interpret their school’s data against the Thriving Lives Toolkit, and use this to inform their priorities and actions;
  • The SCiP Alliance develops a more detailed and better evidenced understanding of unmet needs in relation to work with Service children, and of effective ways to address the needs of this cohort.

SCiP Alliance Strategy:

  • Impact 1: Embed the Thriving Lives Toolkit suite as the quality standard for evidence-based practice in schools.
  • Impact 2: Enhance the suite of support for evidence-based practice.

Partners: The project was generously funded by the Ministry of Defence's Education Support Fund and the Alliance is working with a UK-wide steering group of stakeholders, its IT developer and with expert research and survey advice from Tiller Research Ltd.
