Parent Feedback


We distributed our Parent Questionnaire during parent/teacher consultation evening held on the 26th and 27th February 2020.  We are very grateful to all those parents/carers who completed our satisfaction survey, based on three questions.  Out of a possible 376 we received 174 back.  Thank you for your response; we assume that the remaining 54% are also happy!  

Ofsted launched a new Inspection Framework in September 2019 – this included a review of the ‘Parent View questions/statements’.  As such we distributed the reviewed Questionnaire early in the academic year (October 2019) during KS1 Parent/Teacher Consultations.  Out of a possible 256 we received 106 back; that represented 41% of our KS1 families.  Feedback from the Questionnaire was reported in the November 2019 Newsletter. 

Finally, at the same time last year out of a possible 389 we received 195 back - that represented 50% of parents.

Parental Engagement – Autumn Term 2019: Feedback from Ofsted Questionnaire

September 2019:  Ofsted have changed some of the questions in their parent surveys.  We wanted to hear what our parent feedback would be in relation to these new questions, and so took the decision to issue the full questionnaire at our parent/teacher consultations in the 16th and 17th October 2019. 

The response is as follows:

Out of a possible 256 (currently 14 spaces available in KS1) we received 106 back; that represents 41% of our KS1 families.  At the same time last year when we distributed our mini survey out of a possible 269 (1 space available) we received 125 back (47%).
