Bradford Opportunity Area commissioned Exceed School Improvement, via its Teaching Schools, in May 2019 to develop a parental engagement survey to help identify strengths and areas of school provision that might benefit from further investment in Bradford’s primary and nursery schools.

In developing the survey, Exceed School Improvement developed an approach that they hoped would be useful to both individual schools and all Bradford primary and nursery schools collectively in reflecting on current local parental engagement practice.

In preparing this survey, Exceed School Improvement considered the EEF's 'Working with parents to support children's learning' 2019 guidance report. The report summarises research and evidence based practice. A copy of the report and supporting materials is available here:

Please be aware that the EEF acknowledge that there is not enough good evidence about what practice best improves parental engagement. The content of the survey was not intended to highlight what schools should be doing, rather to help them to self-evaluate and consider if there are ways to enhance what the schools is currently doing.


Further help and support will be coming soon co-ordinated by Exceed Academies Trust on behalf of the Bradford Opportunity Area. Information will be available in due course.
