In our last newsletter we featured our new survey where we are asking parents of left-handed children to pass a survey form to their teachers. We want to find out more about what support is being given to the children and also what training teachers are being given in how to help left-handed children with writing and other activities.
We get a lot of emails every week from parents complaining about lack of support or telling us about problems their children are having at school and this is a chance to DO something about it.
We need your help so we can get a large number of survey responses to justify a campaign to improve things. If you have left-handed children at school or have any involvement in schools or teaching, please take a few minutes to download the survey form, get it completed and give us your feedback.
You can get the full background on this here:

(it is 3 pages with 20 questions in total)
We know from experience that teachers welcome the opportunity to help their left-handed pupils, but are unaware of the steps they can take to do so. This survey is designed to help us understand where we can best provide the information they need, and is in no way a criticism of individual teacher's ability! Having tried other methods of getting this vital information into our children's schools, we feel our own “Parent Power” is by far the most effective and powerful approach and hope you will assist us in gathering the information we need to make a difference.
Thanks for your help and we will be in touch again soon with feedback on the results and what we are doing next.
