Questionnaire Upgrade

From the 24/07/2015 we will be working on a update to our questionnaire software. You will not be able to take part in any of the questionnaires from the 24th to the 27th of July, in addition the service should be considered 'at risk' for the remainder of that week while tests of the upgrade are carried out.


The data selector and data tool will continue to work as normal and you will still be able to view questionnaire results and use all our other lesson plans and resources.


Thank you

Lots of potential to collect and examine some fascinating class data.
