Invitation to participate in a research study:

Dear Parent, 

Norham High School is currently working with Teesside University on a piece of research looking at young people’s perceptions of alcohol.  We are inviting all pupils within the school from Year 7-10 to complete an online survey using school computers on a ‘drop-in’ basis or within their own time.  Recent research has shown that the number of young people who drink alcohol has been declining and this current study is looking at reasons why this might be the case.  If you would like to know more about this study please follow this link:https://nhscddchs.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/children-and-young-people-alcohol-survey-information-sheet-2. If you DO NOT want your child to complete this survey then please complete an opt out consent form within one week of this invitation, which can be accessed from the same link: https://nhscddchs.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/children-and-young-people-alcohol-survey-information-sheet-2

Kind regards,

Dr Emma Giles, Principal Investigator, Teesside University
