The Educate Together national office needs your help. We are reviewing the brand’s communication materials, to ensure that it accurately reflects what is happening in the schools. We are asking a limited number of parents together with their child/children, throughout the country for their feedback. Your feedback is valued and will be used to strengthen the brand going forward. Feedback will be treated confidentially, and your responses will only be quoted in future communications materials to promote Educate Together if you give permission (see question 6 below).
