Just be myself : An interview study about school climate and well-being among students in a middle school in Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att utforska elevernas upplevelser av skolmiljön och hur den påverkar deras upplevda välbefinnande. Som metod användes semistrukturerade intervjuer med en intervjuguide som mall. Urvalet innefattade sex elever i åldern 11-13 år från en och samma mellanstadieklass. Resultatet visade bland annat att flera av eleverna kände sig trygga på skolan och beskrev trygghet som att känna sig välkommen eller att få vara sig själv. Eleverna uttryckte att de fick det stöd de behövde från lärare, elever och föräldrar. Något skolan bör förbättra enligt eleverna var de små lyhörda lokalerna inomhus, den tråkiga skolgården samt att det ibland skulle behövas fler rastvakter utomhus. Slutsatsen av denna studie var att skolmiljön kan påverka elevernas välbefinnande samt att en liten skola kan ha både för- och nackdelar för skolmiljön. Fler kvalitativa studier kan ge en ökad förståelse för skolmiljöns påverkan på eleverna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to explore the students experiences of the school climate and how it affects their well-being. Semi-structured interviews with an interview guide were used as a method. The sample was of six students in the age of 11-13 from one middle school class. The results showed among other things that almost everyone felt safe at school and expressed different definitions of safety such as feeling welcome and feeling like they can be themselves. The students felt supported by the teachers, other students and also their parents. Some things the school should change according to the students were the classrooms which were too small and with inefficient soundproofing, the school yard which was boring, and the fact that the students sometimes wanted more adult supervision during school breaks. The conclusion is that the school climate can affect student’s well-being and that a small school can have both pros and cons regarding the school climate. More qualitative research may result in a better understanding of the way the school climate affects the students.
