  34. 34. ∗ Who can see the data? ∗ Our responses are available to be viewed by Head of Boarding and the Teaching staff only. Boys are advised of this in advance. The Answers
  35. 35. ∗ What is the data used for? ∗ The student responses are used as a guide only. It is a conversation starter and does not replace normal staff supervision of wellbeing. ∗ The data is not used to make judgments – i.e. House Leaders, awards etc… The Answers
