Parents Questionnaires


Recommended Posts

I was just wonder if anyone had an example of a questionnaire that they send out to parents, regarding the service they offer, child's progress, etc etc My next assignement is on 'commuicating with parent's' but I am hoping that it will also give an insight into what they really think!!. I find that in my setting, parents cannot wait to rush out the door, they dont ever read the notice boards and often when a letter's been written and handed directly to them, they still dont seem to read them or take in the information!!??


Thank you in advance

I think that the most important thing to think about before you put out a questionnaire is what exactly it is you want to find out. Recently our committee put out one, but because the chair didn't like 'tick sheet' type answers the questions were very open and led to diverse replies. However, this has been difficult to collate and address because the initial questioning wasn't clear enough. :)
