The Department for Education (DfE) submitted questions on a range of key policy areas to the NFER Teacher Voice Omnibus Survey and Senior Leader Booster Survey conducted in November and December 2015. This report provides a summary of and commentary on the responses to these questions.
The questions explored teachers’ and senior leaders’ views on a variety of topics, including: statutory assessment; curriculum reform; accountability reforms; careers and apprenticeships; building pupils’ character, resilience and active learning; alternative provision; Prevent; physical activity; English as an additional language (EAL) and vocational programmes. All results are nationally representative by school characteristics, including region, performance band, and eligibility for free school meals.
