The BBC reported yesterday that parent groups want a bigger voice in schools with low levels of satisfaction. Schools need parents to be informed, engaged and feeling like they are being heard.
A key to this is not only providing them with an great website, full of all the information that answers their questions, but sometimes giving them opportunities to comment and make suggestions. It's difficult to capture this feedback - across a busy school day and all your staff who all have conversations with parents throughout the day.
EdHQ can help. If you need to gain feedback from your parents (or indeed other stakeholders) this can easily be integrated into your EdHQ Website. Also, we have experience of helping schools gain sensible feedback, so we can advise you on how to introduce and promote an online questionnaire – and how to use the results to provide benefits for your school.
From basic contact forms through to surveys, donations and newsletter signups – our websites include an easy to use web form builder that you can use without the need for server-side coding. Simply select the fields you'd like to capture, then drag and drop to arrange their order.
Automate processes and get back to parents faster. Build multi-step workflows and get notified of new web form submissions, verify steps as they are completed, or remind and forward if needs be.
Use our flexible report generator to create easy to understand, great looking reports, helping you evaluate parent feedback. Easily export data in a variety of formats for analysis offline.
