Evaluation questionnaire
 KL has created 3 questionnaires, one for pupils, one for colleagues and one for the leadership team.  These were agreed in principle with the addition of "other languages" in the language section and some re-arrangements of questions.
           Jill and Kate will put these questions into Survey Monkey so that they can be completed in partner countries.
           The survey will be completed so that teachers can complete these with the whole class rather than the pupils as individuals.
           SurveyMonkey will be created and sent out by the end of April
           Colleagues will complete the SurveyMonkey before the meeting in Sweden
