You are here Parents Survey of Pupils on Literacy & Numeracy March 2013

Thank you to all our pupils who have returned our survey on literacy and numeracy in the school. We are delighted to see that so many of you enjoy both reading and mathematics.

We thank you especially for your comments and suggestions - they are important to us and we will take them on board.

A summary of the responses is given for combined class groups: Infants, First & Second, Third & Fourth and Fifth & Sixth after the bar graphs on Literacy & Numeracy. (Analysis of this information is still ongoing)
