My research project has had ethical approval from Durham University.
At the first action research group we discussed ethics and I shared a useful guide from Durham University.
The group discussed the ethical principles and guidelines on page 8-1. The main points that refer to this research are:
- All participants and their headteachers will sign a form to indicate informed consent
- Participants and their settings will be anonymous unless the agree to be named
- All data will be confidential
- Participants are free to withdraw from the project at any time
