Special Needs and Short Stay Schools

All our surveys have been adapted for use in different settings, like short stay schools (PRUs) and special schools. For example, when conducting a survey across an authority, we often produce versions for special schools and for short stay schools.

We are happy to meet requests to get the questionnaires translated.  [Click on the picture to see a larger version of a page of the primary questionnaire in Polish.]
