1. Your views about your school – Questions for pupils

We want to know what pupils think of school: What do you think works well? What needs to change? How could we make things better?

What you tell us is private and anonymous. We will not be able to identify who you are from the survey so feel free to tell us what you really think.

By telling us what you think, you will be helping schools to make improvements. Your views will help your own school and other schools across Edinburgh.

The survey will take about 10 minutes or so to complete.

We do need you to tell us which school you attend.

Thank you for completing the survey.
