Thank you so much for your engagement with our first survey this week.
Distance Learning Surveys
With this email, we are pleased to release a further two surveys - one for you and one for your child.
The estimated completion time for the parent survey is 12 minutes and the estimated completed time for the child survey is 6 minutes. You will need to complete separate surveys for each child.
The results of these surveys will shape our school learning plan, our class learning plans and the learning plan we put in place for your own child for the coming months. It is mostly about distance learning because we want to have a community that feels ready and has the skill-set required, should we need to move to distance learning again. Please note, however, that we are planning to reopen the school building for all and to keep it open for all.
Please consider carefully the questions and take the time to complete the parent survey and to support your child in completing the child survey - that might mean reading the questions for them, clicking the responses for them and/or allowing time for them to think and discuss.
This survey will close at 2pm next Monday, 17th August.
