NFER Survey

Dear Parent/Carer

NFER School Survey YR – Y6

St. Mary’s CE Primary School Parent Online Survey 2017

I am writing to ask for your help with a survey that the NFER (National Foundation for Educational Research) is undertaking on behalf of the school. The survey provides an opportunity for parents to let us know what they think about different aspects of school life. It will provide key information to support the school self-evaluation process.

Many parents completed our Christian Distinctiveness Questionnaire that was sent home in the Autumn Term which focused on our effectiveness as a faith school. The results made very interesting reading and we were able to identify areas for development and actions to address these as a result of your feedback. This survey focuses on our overall effectiveness and we hope to gain further insight into parental views of the school.

To assist us in learning more about what parents think, we would like to ask you for 10 to 25 minutes of your time to complete a survey which covers a range of topics which are important to us.

The survey is an online questionnaire. To access the survey, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Type the following internet address into the web page address bar:
  2. Enter our school number: 202338
  3. Enter the following password: CVQZ
  4. Click on ‘Begin’
  5. When ready, click on ‘Next’
  6. Instructions for completing individual questions will appear on each page

7.When you have completed the questionnaire, click on the final ‘Next’ button and the responses will be sent directly to NFER.

The parent survey is completely confidential and anonymous and participation is entirely voluntary. However, for the open-ended questions in the survey your complete comments will be sent to the school, provided you give your permission when requested at the end of the survey.

For parents with more than one child in the school we ask you to complete the survey for your oldest child only.

If you would like access to a computer at school to complete the survey please speak to        Mrs Abraham in the school office who will be happy to organise this for you.

If you have any queries about the survey, please do not hesitate to contact the school and we will be happy to answer your queries.



Your response will provide valuable information for us so we very much hope that you will participate.

Many thanks in advance for your time.

Yours sincerely

Amanda Bishop

(Deputy Head)
