Disability Equality in English Primary Schools (DEEPS): Our methods

September 2007 - September 2009

This project will include an exploration and assessment of resources available to schools to facilitate teaching about disability equality, a questionnaire/survey of schools, interviews with teachers and focus groups with children.

For further information relating to the methodology, please contact Dr Angharad Beckett.


In addition to academic publications arising from this project, the findings will also be disseminated widely amongst a range of potential user-groups, including disabled people and their organisations, local authorities, schools and other education professionals.

Furthermore, in the future a section of this website will provide details of resources that might be used to facilitate teaching and learning about disability equality and that are available to schools. Many of these resources will also be suitable for use by parents that wish to address issues relating to disability with their own children.

All members of the DEEPS team have experience of working with children and young people in a research or other professional capacity.
