Dear Parent/Carer

Annual self-evaluation survey
View of parents and carers

This survey has been devised to help us provide your child with a high quality education. Your views will help us find out what we are doing well and where we could improve.

I would like to thank the thousands of parents and carers who have taken part in the survey before and encourage even more of you to do so this year. The views of parents and carers really help us to improve services at the school level and across the city.

If possible, please complete the survey on-line using the following link:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cfsurvey-parents

(Please note, if the link does not open, please copy and paste it into your browser and it should open from there).

Paper copies are available from your child’s school if preferred.

We have not asked you to provide your name. This is so that you can express your views freely knowing they will be anonymous.

The deadline for completion of the survey is Friday 8th February 2013.

A summary of the results will be circulated to all schools.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely

Gillian Tee
