Glasgow Education Survey 
Glasgow Education Survey
On behalf of Maureen McKenna, Executive Director of Education
As you know we are always looking at ways in which to improve our services and most importantly, target the needs of each of our children and young people.
To do this we need to listen to the views of everyone in the city that our schools and nurseries have an impact on so we have published an online education services stakeholders survey.
This is a simple survey that will take no more than 10 minutes to complete and we are looking for the view of pupils, staff, parents, carers – in fact anyone who has a vested interested in improving learning and teaching in Glasgow!
The survey will be open from now until the end of May and we are looking forward to getting a high return rate.
Many thanks for your support.
