What is the survey about?
The survey is interested in finding out about parents’ awareness of Pupil Premium and how this is used within the school to support their child/ren's education. You will be asked your views on the impact Pupil Premium has had on your child's education and whether you are encouraged by your child's school as parents/carers to participate within the spending of Pupil Premium to enhance your child's learning.
