What does an 'adoption friendly' school look like? - Research Questionnaire

My name is Kat and I am a research assistant at PAC-UK, the country's largest independent adoption support agency.

As part of a Department for Education funded grant we are currently developing a framework to support schools to work towards becoming more 'adoption friendly'. To better our understanding and inform this framework, we aim to gather views about what works well from adoptive parents, special guardians, school staff, education and adoption professionals, and adopted adults with recent experiences of education in the UK.

We have created an online questionnaire (link below) as the first step in gathering these views, and are really keen to hear as many opinions as possible before closing the survey next week.

It would be of great help to our work if anyone that feels they fall into the mentioned groups (e.g. adoptive parents, special guardians etc) could take part in the survey. Furthermore, it would be greatly appreciated if people could pass on the details to other relevant people they know who may also be interested. More details can be found by clicking the link above.

Many thanks,

Actually it made pretty grim reading - it didn;t occur to me schools should be doing half the things on that list!

Yes, I just wanted to type 'I wish!' in answer to every question.
