Shropshire IASS – useful information




Are you the parent of a child or young person, under 25 years old, with a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND)? We need your help! Please complete our short survey below to help us inform services during lockdown.

Purpose of this survey:
Shropshire, Solihull & Birmingham IASSs are conducting a survey to capture the views of families of children and young people with SEND in lockdown. Although this survey is not mandatory to complete, we would really appreciate your time and input, it should only take 5 minutes. There is a box at the end if you have anything else you want to add. To maintain anonymity please do not write identifying information in the final box.


How responses will be used:
The information provided will not be misused or made public. The responses will be analysed confidentially and will form a basis of a report to help services, including the Local Authorities and schools, to understand what has been helpful for families, and what has not, during this pandemic, so that everyone can learn from this. It can then be used to develop strategies so families are better able to get the help and support they may need if similar events were to occur in the future.

How the data will be stored:
The responses are collected via Survey Monkey platform. Survey Monkey privacy policy is available here:

How long the data will be kept for:
Birmingham IASS will analyse the anonymous responses and create a report.
The responses will be deleted as soon as the survey has been analysed.

Our lawful basis under GDPR:
Our lawful basis under GDPR is that we have a ‘legitimate interest’ to use personal data for the above purpose.
