Parents’ Feedback Survey

I'm seeking parents’ views about remote learning and the keyworker support scheme. I’d particularly like to know what’s going well, what challenges you face and what you'd like to see improved in relation to: Internet connectivity; Access to computer/ iPad etc; Challenges associated with remote learning and the use of Seesaw. You will receive a message with a direct link to the survey. If you have difficulty accessing the link, please contact me and an alternative link will be provided. If you have more than one child in the school, please complete a separate survey for each child.


In the interim, keep safe and thank you for your continued support in these most challenging times. If you would like further clarification on any aspect of the school’s provision, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Yours sincerely
