Conducting large-scale surveys in secondary schools: the case of the youth on religion (YOR) project

Authors:
MADGE Nicola, et al
Journal article citation:
Children and Society, 26(6), November 2012, pp.417-429.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

To date, there are very few research articles on conducting large-scale surveys in secondary schools. This paper seeks to fill this gap by drawing on the experiences of the ‘Youth On Religion’ project in the United Kingdom. It discusses the politics of gaining access to these schools and the considerations leading to the adoption and administration of an online survey. It is concluded that successful research in schools has to be planned carefully in collaboration with key members of staff, and justified as an educational activity. Providing speedy feedback was helpful to ensure schools benefited from the research and to keep them engaged with the project. Implications for future school-based research are discussed.

Journal article

The concept of significant harm in law and practice

Authors:
HARWIN Judith, MADGE Nicola
Journal article citation:
Journal of Children's Services, 5(2), June 2010, pp.73-83.
Publisher:
Emerald

The Children Act 1989 introduced the concept of significant harm as a threshold test for care proceedings. This paper, examining the value of the concept of significant harm some 20 years after its introduction in the Children Act 1989, first introduces the concept of significant harm and then outlines the profile of children and families in care proceedings, the decision-making process, the interpretation of significant harm in case law, ‘panic’ and its impact on patterns of referrals for case proceedings, and the issue of resources. The author highlights an alternative model of the problem-solving court. While it has been suggested that ‘significant harm’ has stood the test of time, the absence of a clear operational definition is both its strength and its weakness – it allows necessary professional discretion but is vulnerable to external pressures affecting its interpretation. In conclusion, the author states that a more confident workforce and adequate resources are required, but the future role of the court and compulsory care is more contentious. The problem-solving court model may offer a helpful way forward for the scrutiny of significant harm.
