New School Omnibus Survey
will have received an email recently containing a link to the new School
Omnibus Survey. The aims of the survey are to collect information which is
essential to the Department and at the same time, reduce the number of enquiries
directed to schools by requesting the required information using one annual survey.
The survey will therefore cover a range of topics, for example pupil
participation and shared education, and is easy to complete since it is mainly
tick box answers.
It would be
greatly appreciated if principals could spare 15 minutes from their busy
schedules to provide this important information for their school. All responses
will be strictly confidential and will not be reported at school level. Please do not hesitate to contact Oonagh
Neenan, Statistics and Research Team on 028 9127 9438 or at email@example.com if you have any further queries.
