State of Education survey report 2016 - Page 39

About the survey The Key surveyed school leaders and governors in January and February 2016. The questionnaire for this study was designed by The Key and conducted online using Survey Monkey. 1,188 school leaders and 979 governors completed the full survey. The data has been weighted to match the population profile of schools in The Key’s database in terms of region, school phase and school type. The data described in this summary can therefore be taken to represent the views of school leaders and governors on The Key’s database, which in turn provides an indication of the opinions of school leaders and governors in mainstream schools across England. About The Key The Key provides impartial, trusted leadership and management support to nearly half of schools in England. Our market-leading information services and events help busy school leaders and governors work with increased confidence, knowledge and capacity. At the heart of everything we do is a passionate commitment to supporting schools in delivering better outcomes for children and young people.
