Disadvantage Student Questionnaire

    I'm looking to create a questionnaire for my Disadvantaged Students to undertake, focusing upon engagement in school and attitude to both self and school - I was just wondering if anyone knew of anything that was already out there that is really useful/good???

    Don't want to pour hot water on your well-intended ideas, but you might want to think about the following:
    a) How will you initially identify your 'disadvantaged' students? School data (Ever 6 etc) perhaps?

    b) How will you hand out the survey or inform your intended audience of the survey (if you create it online) without making them feel singled-out or different to their fellow pupils?

    Even if you don't label the survey 'Survey to find out what effect disadvantage has on educational engagement ...' the pupils you identify will certainly want to know why you have selected them.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that may have been looked into before...

    I've identified the students & intend to have them along with a number of non- disadvantaged students undertake the questionnaire, do that they aren't singled out. My intention is to measure engagement & I think I've found one I can use, thanks
