We have a survey for parents to fill in on their child’s experience at school. Whether negative or positive, we can learn what works in this setting and we can address those issues and challenges that children and parents have had.
Please note, the survey will be treated as confidential and no personal information will be shared. The information is to help us assess the extent and nature of the challenges and problems you may have experienced and to guide us in developing tools and information to assist parents, children and teachers.
