Engagement Survey (Schools)

As a parent I know how important it is to feel consulted by school. As a researcher I know how valuable those insights can be for schools to be able to get through a very difficult time getting better all the time.

Adapting to changes in the way we do things is a challenge but feedback from users can help you adjust what you do and how you do it to suit everyone's needs and circumstances better.

With the many time pressures of lockdown there is no easy way to find this. So what if you can provide them with an quick and easy opportunity to tell you how you are doing and provide any feedback on what needs to change?

This free survey template is concise. It is easy to complete. And it provides important feedback on your efforts to continue providing the best education for the children in your schools.

You can use it straight out of the box, just follow the simple instructions below to send it to your parents and carers today.

For even better results you might want to make a few changes to the content. There are a few tips in this blog which might help. If you would like to do this but are feeling less confident get in touch and I can assist you further.
