News and views from the Drug Education Forum

TellUs3

Ofsted have published the questions they’re going to ask pupils. Their website says:

Tellus3 is a confidential online survey to gather the views of children and young people. Although devised by Ofsted in partnership with the Government’s Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF), it will be run by local authorities through participating schools across England from 17 March to 12 June 2008.

It provides evidence for the National Indicator set used in Annual Performance Assessments and Joint Area Reviews, and can help local authorities judge the impact of their services on perceived quality of life for children and young people.

The questions we’re likely to be interested in are below (sorry about the formatting).
