In December, I published Part 2 of my Independent Family Review. As part of the Review, I have also published numerous Annexes in support of the main report, providing further details and insights into our new research, including our findings from The Big Summer Survey (TBSS). Today, we are publishing a webpage for children across the country to explore, showcasing the findings from the survey alongside links to key resources and ideas for activities to enjoy with family.

In total, over 15,800 children responded to TBSS across England, from 800 schools across all regions of England. In the online survey, the CCo asked children aged 7-17 how they spent their school break and who they spent their time with. The survey also asked children about their family and who they would turn to for support with family life. Some of the key findings from the report are outlined below:

As reflected in Part 2 of the Family Review, the responses to TBSS shine a light on the importance of family, friends, and school staff when in need of support with family life and highlight variation in access to outside spaces and places to safely spend time with family and friends, both online and offline.
