“The school has helped my daughter a lot, I am really proud of the staff and senior leadership. Thank you very much!”
The parent questionnaire which is normally used by OFSTED inspection teams was given to all parents. Parents were asked to complete it anonymously and on their own and were requested to return the completed questionnaires to their class teachers. Parents were asked to answer from their own personal perspective, rather than give a collective view.
A small working party looked at all the questionnaires, and collated the results in the form of graphs.
Responses were received from 139 invited to take part, a fantastic participation return. The purpose of the survey was to help assess where we are as a school and to provide some footings for how the school might be improved.
The survey was designed in two parts, the first being a set of positive statements with tick box options to agree or disagree and the final question being an open question about the strengths and weaknesses of the school. The first produces a clear quantitative measure allowing the assessments of the different aspects of the school to be directly compared. This approach ensures that parents were not constrained by the questionnaire. The survey results are presented in two corresponding parts. The first is all the results collated into a table and the latter a set of charts showing the responses to the set questions. This report presents and describes the responses given by the parents.
