Together we work to succeed

Parent Survey 2019

Parent Survey 2019

At regular intervals throughout the year, we send out parent questionnaires. This is for a number of purposes.

to develop an open and honest relationship with parents and carers

to provide feedback on how well the school is providing for the children

to support the identification of areas for school development and enable us to prioritise effectively

to provide evidence on the effectiveness of the school.


We use the recently updated Ofsted Parent View Questions


My child is happy at this school


My child feels safe at this school


The school makes sure its pupils are well behaved


My child has not been bullied

My child has been bullied and the school dealt with the bullying quickly and effectively.


The school makes me aware of what my child will learn during the year


I have not raised any concerns

When I have raised concerns with the school they have been dealt with properly.


My child does not have SEND

My child has SEND, and the school gives them the support they need to succeed.


The school has high expectations for my child


My child does well at this school


The school lets me know how my child is doing


There is a good range of subjects available to my child at this school


 My child can take part in clubs and activities at this school


The school supports my child’s wider personal development


 I would recommend this school to another parent (please tick)


 This is the outcome of the survey that parents completed during July 2019

 24 questionnaires were completed at the very end of the Summer Term – This is about 75% of the families in the school.

Each questionnaire counts for 4.2%

Please note that for  questions 4,6 & 7 either part can be answered, with only the 2nd part requiring a level of agreement or disagreement.

We are very pleased that most parents  agree and strongly agree with so many of the the comments.

Since the last survey we have particularly focused on these areas as a result of the feedback given:

  • We have worked on improving our communications with parents and have increased the quality and clarity of information that we share (regarding progress) on a termly basis at Parents Evenings and through the Annual Report for each child.

  • We now have an extra member to our SEND team, keeping our knowledge and expertise current and enabling more time to find the best solutions for children with SEND.

I would urge any parent who has any concerns at  all (or positive feedback too) to come in and speak to me so that we can best work together in meeting your child/ children's needs. Thanks.

Your continued support is truly appreciated,
