A survey to help plan the need for school places in the borough will be launched this month.
Staff from QA Research will be going door-to-door in areas including The Parks, Jennett’s Park and Wykery Copse, carrying out interviews.
The survey will help Bracknell Forest Council plan for school places and classrooms and will run until March.
The questions will include the size of the home, how many children live there and how old they are, to help the council to predict future demands on certain schools.
Councillor Gareth Barnard, the council’s executive member for children, young people and learning, said: “Bracknell Forest continues to be an area of considerable housing growth and this survey will help us to gain a better picture of the future needs for school places within the borough.
“I would like to thank in advance all the residents who participate in the survey, which is an important piece of work for Bracknell Forest. ”
The last survey took place in 2010.
Researchers will carry identification and a letter of introduction with contact numbers to confirm who they are before asking any questions.
