Safe and happy holidays? Survey to facilitate disclosures


(Click for the full A4 PDF / Google Form - remember to speak to your DSL first)

A key part of keeping children safe is to know them well - their concerns and worries (at home and school), but of course also what they love and what makes them happy.

That's why we made this form (PDF version / Google Form - only for school accounts ) to help you review with children and young people what happened over the summer break (works well after other holidays too) and to prepare for the year ahead.

This isn't just a safeguarding tool, but will of course help with behavioural and teaching & learning issues by informing teachers about the children in their care.

While we might instinctively shy away from anything that could encourage a raft of disclosures in the first week of term, it is of course so important and we know that many children and young people will have had a very hard time over the summer for a variety of reasons, so hopefully this is a useful tool - including of course, to help teachers/tutors get to know their new class and talk about the fun in the holidays too.
