Education Survey & Research Service

The Parent Survey

The standard parent survey consists of 30 tick-box questions and a comments box. All parents are invited to complete it online. The surveys focus on parents’/carers’ views about their child’s (primary or secondary) school and schooling; their experience of access to and contact with the school, their perception of the teachers, the quality of communication between school and parents, the school’s curriculum and standards, and the way in which the school caters for pupils’ academic and pastoral needs.
