For Schools and Teachers


Thank you for agreeing to participate in our study, and for your participation and co-operation so far. 

The links below provide information about our findings from our first visits to the pupils in the Summer 2013 term. Results from pupil surveys and/or focus groups will be posted as and when data are collected and collated. 


Schools from all over Wales are represented in the study. We have a broad mix of schools in terms of medium of instruction, the number of pupils attending each school and the location of each school within Wales. 

Each school will participate over a period of three years (from January 2013 to December 2015). School participation will include pupil questionnaires and focus groups, parental questionnaires, teacher surveys and interviews with head teachers and Chairs of Boards of Governors. By the end of the three-year period we hope to have gained a substantial amount of information from pupils, parents and educators that we will collate and send to key organisations, such as the Welsh Government, with the aim of providing a voice for the relevant stakeholder groups involved in the study.
