It is always valuable to consider he views of parents when running any school. We believe it is also vital that the views of pupils are valued too.
This section of the website shows the views of pupils and parents over time to our work and also details of how to use the government’s ‘Parent View’ data collection website.
The school is outstanding in educational standards and that is important but equally so I am very happy with the mannerly, considerate attitudes displayed by staff & kids & the lack of bad behaviour & bullying
Annual Parent Survey
We have carried out annual parent surveys for many, many years. The surveys take place during Spring Term parent/teacher interview evenings.
My children are viewed as individuals rather than a number & their educational needs are fully understood.
It must be noted that in such a small school one response, on average, represents around 5% of the opinions expressed.
Enthusiastic motivational teaching
Sometimes we use the Ofsted format and sometimes we seek parental opinions about specific issues.
Here is a sample of responses from previous surveys carried out in school (totals are percentages):
Parents can also express their opinions about the school on the government’s ‘Parent View’ website. This is updated every year and can be accessed at: http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/
Caring & spiritual ethos
