Starting School was a research project that engaged Bradford primary schools and which ran for two consecutive academic years (2012-13 and 2013-14). The project aimed to assess all children in their first (reception) year of schooling who were in schools where there were at least 10 Born in Bradford children enrolled. Ninety-four out of the 142 primary schools in Bradford were contacted in the recruitment phase. The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) is a brief behavioural screening tool assessing psychological attributes such as emotional symptoms, conduct problems, hyperactivity, peer relationships and prosocial behaviour. This version was completed by the child’s class teacher, and also includes an impact supplement, which assesses the teacher’s perceived impact of the difficulties identified.
