The Big Ask Children’s Survey, from the Children’s Commissioner
The Children’s Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza has launched a once-in-a-generation review of children’s lives.
It’s called ‘The Childhood Commission’ and it will identify the barriers preventing children reaching their full potential and propose policy solutions to address them.
At its heart is ‘The Big Ask’ – the largest ever consultation held with children.
In this survey the Children’s Commissioner is asking children and young people what they think is important for their future and what is holding young people back. The Children’s Commissioner will use what children and young people tell her to show the Government what they think and what they need to live happier lives.
We have had great feedback from schools and parents who have taken part:
“Me and my six year old just completed #TheBigAsk. She loved it…Great way to talk about feelings and very child friendly. Also loved the quiz at the end” Jane (parent) parent
“It is vitally important that we listen to children and give them a forum to speak to us to help us understand them better… Having children identify what they see as potential barriers to their lifelong success is powerful and gives us the opportunity to improve their chances of great success. I encourage all children and families to get involved and ensure that their voices are heard!” Angela Watts (Headteacher at The Arbours Primary Academy)
