Children's Rights & Confidence Questionnaire
This questionnaire is being designed to see how confident children and young people feel to speak up if they face difficult situations. It is linked to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
We would like as many children as possible aged 7-11 years to complete it, so we can tell which questions work best for this age group.
You can access the survey from this link: https://shef.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bBeM5MKUIPedAeW
If you are a teacher, and would like to run this in school, it is really important that parents and carers are given an opportunity to opt out beforehand. Please contact the project lead, Professor Dawn Watkins firstname.lastname@example.org for parent information and opt out forms.
If you want to know more, please have a look at the FAQs below, or email email@example.com.
What is this about?
We are making this questionnaire as part of a research project about children and the law.
It will help us find out whether children and young people feel confident to speak up in a number of difficult situations.
We have already made a version which is suitable for 11-15 year olds.
Now we want to make a shorter version for 7-11 year olds.
Why is it important?
Answers to this questionnaire will help us work out which questions to use in the shorter version, so your contribution to this research is very important and much appreciated.
Do I have to join in?
No, you do not have to join in. Please only answer the questions if you and your parent/carer are happy for you to do this.
If you start the questionnaire and decide that you don’t want to continue, you can stop at any time. There is no need to explain why.
What will happen if I join in?
You will be asked to answer 23 questions and to click the answer which you feel best describes your feelings or thoughts.
This is not a test, and there are no right or wrong answers.
You can ask for help to read the questions. You can also press an audio button to hear the words read out to you.
Can you tell who I am from my answers?
No. The questionnaire is anonymous, so we cannot tell who you are from your answers.
At the start we ask you to provide some information which makes a unique code for you. This means your answers can be removed if you or your parent/carer requests this.
