Can you spare 2 minutes to complete a survey?

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by InspiredFoundations, Jul 21, 2011.

  1. I am wondering if you could take just a couple of minutes to complete my survey on professionals knowledge of the issues faced by looked-after and adopted children. It is not a test, and if you feel you don't know anything that is fine - my aim is to try to assess how much various professionals know and if/where they can access any training.


    Thank you in advance

    I have to say that I don't know enough about it to know if I need to know about it.
    I guess you're saying that I do - I'm not sure whether it''s more of a pastoral thing, and how it impacts on subject teaching.

    Questions asked about 'adopted' children - I'm sure in 30 years I have taught quite a few, but this is something private that the schools simply don't know about (at least the 10+ secondary schools I've worked in!)

    We are now supposed to know, because ofsted are keen to measure the positive progress of "looked after" children.

    I don't think 'adopted' children count as 'looked after'. In my experience 'Looked after' means either 'in care' or 'fostered'.

    I did the survey but I could have done with a 'never heard of it' option for many of the questions.

    That's my understanding too
