Revised EDP/NGN survey of schools governors

Thank you to everyone who filled in the original survey. Unfortunately, a number of people encountered errors, or were unable to answer some of the questions as they wished to.

We have created a new version of the survey, following the feedback we received. We would be grateful if everyone who completed the original survey, and those who have not yet done so, could please complete this version of the survey.

We apologise for the confusion, and to people who had already taken the time to complete the first survey. We hope the new questionnaire will produce data that is useful to the NGN and the EDP.

Thank you.
