Parents and Carers – Evidence for Learning Survey

Dear All,

Hurray, another survey! We are sending this updated survey out to see if there is an improvement in the understanding and use of Evidence for Learning. We attended a conference on Evidence for Learning and there are lots of exciting new developments in the pipeline (we’re still waiting for the app for parents!) which will improve and extend the function of the app.  It is clearly becoming better known and more respected as a tool for measuring progress and capturing the learning journey that our pupils take, as OFSTED are now moving away from data driven progress to progress against EHCP outcomes and each child’s own starting point.

Again a very big thank you to those who completed the survey before, I’d love it if we could smash our previous number of responses (27 – come on we can do better than that!).  As you will know from our communication about how we have used your responses to surveys we do do something about it and we do really value your opinions so that we can make things even better!  if you want your voice heard this is an excellent vehicle for this.

Thanks so much (again)

Kate Davies
