Citizens in Transition in England: the Longitudinal Cohort at age 19-20

This report presents the key findings from the second component of the CiT study, namely the cross-national survey of citizenship participation and engagement among 19-25 year olds in England, Scotland and Wales. It sheds light on their evolving citizenship attitudes and their current and future engagement and behaviours, particularly in relation to political interest and engagement. Young people in these countries have had different citizenship learning experiences. For those schooled wholly or mainly in England, Citizenship formed a part of their statutory educational experience from age 11 to 16. In contrast, those schooled wholly or mainly in Scotland or Wales might have experienced citizenship education but it was not statutory and it was delivered through a different curriculum framework.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but being left on my own is worse: an analysis of reported bullying at school within NFER attitude surveys

Since early 2010 the NFER has been working with both primary and secondary schools to allow them to survey their own pupils and better understand their views across a range of issues. With almost 100 secondary schools and more than 35,000 pupils in years 7 to 13 having taken part we have now begun undertaking a national analysis of the results so far. We have begun by exploring findings relating to bullying at school and have produced some interesting results.

Targeting children's centre services on the most needy families

While continuing to acknowledge the value of ‘universal’ services, The Government has asked children’s centres and local authorities to target services on the ‘most needy’ families. This research aimed to provide local authority early years’ and children’s services leaders, and children’s centre managers with evidence of how children’s centre services are targeting the most disadvantaged families. It involved a rapid review of research and policy, together with case studies in six English local authorities.
