1. Introduction

10 July 2017

Dear Parents / Carers

At Bartholomew School, we believe it is important to gather information from students, parents and carers, staff, governors and others from our local community to help inform future developments at our school. To this aim, thank you for completing this online survey, which includes questions on a wide range of areas of school life.

We would be grateful if you could complete this survey by 24 July, to enable us to analyse the responses before the start of next term. We will feed back to you via the newsletter. The feedback will provide you with an overview of what parents believe the school is doing well along with any improvements parents would like to see.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Bartholomew School.

Yours sincerely

Ms Page
Assistant Headteacher
