Parents in Moray are being invited to say to what extent they are satisfied with their children’s schooling.
They are being asked to take part in an online survey which will help Moray Council assess the level of parental satisfaction with local schools.
Although individual schools periodically arrange their own questionnaires for parents, this is the first time that the council has attempted to gauge parental satisfaction across all eight secondary and 45 primary schools.
The survey consists of 16 questions and is anonymous, although parents are asked which school their child attends.
A council spokesman said all Scottish local authorities were required to collect information on the performance of children’s services.
“While most of the data is available, we do not have collated information on how satisfied or otherwise parents are with their children’s school.
“Individual schools are responsible for their own surveys of parental opinion and those surveys may differ in style and content, so it is important that we have a survey where parents are able to response to the same set of questions.
“We are keen to hear the views of parents which will help to contribute to the council’s aim of continuous improvement.”
The survey is available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/morayparentsurvey2012_13 and should take only a few minutes to complete.
Individual schools also have a limited supply of paper copies which are available to parents on request.
