I've been teaching for over 20 years now and have written a book about teaching for teachers. With my own first child going to secondary school in September, I really want to do some research into what young people actually think - about school, about their teachers, about their subjects. I'd like to find out about how young people really, honestly feel and how we (that's as parents AND teachers) can best support you through the secondary years, and how we can help you to be successful and happy in adulthood.
You won't be asked for your full name OR the name of your school. Whether you share an email address or not is up to you and I will only use it either to share the research with you or ask you follow-up questions related directly to this project. Your parents/carers won't be able to see what you write unless you want to show it to them.
Thank you so much for your time. Your voices are the most important of all.
