1.1 The following resolution was approved by the 2016 Annual General Meeting: 

"This Council resolves to survey Local Associations to ascertain: 

(a) the extent to which schools and local authorities carry out exercises where pupils and parents are invited to rate or comment upon the service provided by individual teachers or groups of teachers;

(b) the nature of such exercises and their ascribed purpose; 

(c) the impact of such exercises on teachers." 

1.2 The Employment Relations Committee decided to survey the Local Association Secretaries in the first instance. A total of 7 responses were received in response to the first letter. A further letter requesting additional information resulted in a further 7 responses being received. This gave a total number of responses of 14.
