Dear Parent/Carer


We are taking part in a new scheme being run in Harrow which will help us to think about how we work with families and support us to build stronger links between home and school.

We will be looking at lots of different areas including: the school environment; how we communicate and how we help you to support learning at home.


The first step is to gather the views of everyone involved in school life: parents and carers; all staff and Governors.


To help us make decisions about how we work in the future we need the views of as many parents as possible. Please help by taking part in the online survey. The short survey is anonymous and can be done online. The following link has been emailed to you via ParentPay Communications.

It is open now and will close on Friday 6th July.


Once we have the results we will let you know the areas we plan to work on – and we will keep you informed of our progress via emails and the school newsletter. If you have any questions please contact:



Please answer all the questions, thinking about what happens CURRENTLY at your child's school. Your individual responses are anonymous. Thank you very much for your help.
