Overview

As a school we want to provide an amazing educational experience for all our children, therefore it‟s crucial to gather as much information as possible about our school and community to help us lead Walton School on towards an exciting future of learning. The Board of Trustees feels it is time to revisit our vision for the school and fine tune it where necessary.

We want to identify the GOOD THINGS we do now. But we also want to introduce NEW IDEAS THAT WILL IMPROVE OUR SCHOOL. Most of all we need to reaffirm what our school stands for and what we have to offer current and potential students. Please find attached a questionnaire that gives you an opportunity to comment on: 1. 2. 3. 4.
