Are you a senior leader of a secondary school in England, interested in the impact of behaviour policies on attendance and exclusions?  

The National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), in collaboration with University College London, are conducting an online survey to learn more about whether school behaviour policies help reduce exclusions and improve the attendance of secondary school pupils in England.  

There is currently limited research in the UK exploring what school behaviour policies look like, and their impact on pupil attendance and exclusions. The survey findings will help NatCen to determine whether it is feasible to group policies into different types, including those that adopt an aspirational approach.  

The survey will take 15 minutes to complete and asks questions about the content of your school’s behaviour policy, as well as some information about the characteristics of your school. You will receive a £10 voucher as a thank you.  

Complete the survey if you are a mainstream, state funded secondary school located in England with pupils aged 11 and above.
