parents want and expect from their child’s education

Why should you survey
your school's parents?

Why wait for an Ofsted or ISI inspection to get the views of your parents? Regular surveying of your parents can help to discover their views and thoughts and help inform decision making.

Ofsted looks favourably on schools that are proactive in communicating and gathering feedback from all stakeholders in a school – especially the parents.

EVC’s Parental Surveys offer a very cost-effective solution to canvassing opinion – we do all the work for you! 10 minutes of your time is all that is needed to order the survey and create custom questions if required.

We are fully GDPR compliant (see more here) and can have your survey up and running within a day.

Research has proved that a termly survey on different subjects is the ideal way to quickly and accurately gather feedback from your parents.

Well researched, effective questions – but adaptable to your school’s needs
All our surveys have been extensively researched with questions to get the best feedback for schools. However, we understand that schools sometimes need to get opinions on topics that matter to them. Therefore, we allow schools to define up to 5 custom questions, and also skip any of the default questions you do not feel are relevant to you.

For the bespoke surveys how will the school ensure that the survey fits its needs?
For bespoke surveys we have a consultant with over 25 years’ teaching experience in both the state and independent sector. The last 7 of these were spent in marketing and external relations for schools. Our team will work with your internal stakeholders to ensure the survey we put together will provide you with the insights and feedback you need.
