Parent’s survey about Spark Young Writers

We are interested to know why some of our Spark Young Writers haven’t signed up this year. We would be very grateful if you could complete the questionnaire below. The information can be given anonymously if you prefer.

Thank you for completing this survey. It should take no more than 5 minutes, and can remain anonymous, unless you want to enter the prize draw. Please answer with regards to your child who has previously attended one of our Spark Young Writers groups or Summer School. The data collected will help us plan our work for next year, meet the needs of the young people we work with and and ensure that we can continue to improve the activities we run for young people across the West Midlands.

Let us know if our records are correct. If your young writer is with us this year, there is no need to progress further with the survey! Thanks for taking the time to let us know.
Select as many as apply.
It will help with our planning to know how much of a factor being online has been for your child.
Your chance to let us know what you thought of the sessions, the administration - anything Spark related!
Please type carefully! Don't worry, we won't share this data with any third party organisations.
