The table above indicates the collection rate for each of the key categories

The initial request for information from Principals have been very encouraging, so much so that within a matter of weeks important trends are emerging from the Data collected.

As you can see from the table above, we have high collection rates in some categories......
But this is work in progress and we believe that having data from the great majority of Principals will provide clear and valuable information for our Profession. If you have not yet provided your data, simply supply the following information in an email to - firstname.lastname@example.org:
Year you were first appointed principal [at any school];
Year you were first appointed to your current school;
Naturally all data will be treated totally IN CONFIDENCE and no individual's situation will be published as part of this Data Study.
