Please take part in this survey to help us to evaluate and review Croydon Council’s school application process. We are particularly interested in hearing from parents/carers who have ever missed the deadline for an application or have experienced difficulty with the application process.

Your views are very valuable to us and will help us have an insight into your experience of applying for a primary or secondary school place for your child and will inform any future improvements in delivering our school admissions service to you. 

Note that this survey is not related to in-year applications.

The survey closes on 31 August 2020

We’ve asked for your information on this survey because it tells us more about the people (like you) who use our services. If we know more about you, we know more about the way our services are used and this helps us to make improved decisions about them. It also helps us to make sure we’re hearing from all our diverse communities.

There are times when we need to collect your contact information (so we can keep in touch). When we ask for this, we will be clear about why we’re collecting this information and how it will be used. When we analyse responses and report findings from our surveys, your personal details will not be identifiable. That’s the same for when we ask for demographic information (like your age, gender identity, ethnicity or disabilities). We’ll also make sure that you don’t have to answer any questions about you, if you don’t want to.

If you complete this survey/form and have changed your mind about giving us this data, we’ll remove it. You can do this by emailing your name and the words ‘OPT OUT’ to school.admissions@croydon.gov.uk or phoning 020 8726 6000 (Ext 61884). We’ll extend this for 30 days after a survey/form has closed.
