Parent/Carer Questionnaire – March

At Catrine PS we are constantly looking for ways to improve our school to ensure that we deliver the best possible learning and teaching experiences for our pupils.   We recognise the importance of the views and opinions of parents/carers, so each month we will post a short questionnaire on GLOW. 

It would be much appreciated if you could complete the questionnaire. All responses will be anonymous.  We will display the results of each questionnaire on GLOW so that you are kept up to date with our priorities for improvement.  Our pupils will also complete the same questionnaire in their House groups during our Home Circle time.
