Parental Feedback

The views of parents are important to us as a school community. We are beginning to routinely seek parents' views at each of the parent consultation evenings.

 

We have asked parents a number of key questions about school performance. Responses could be one of the five indicated below:

 

Strongly disagree

Disagree

Neither agree nor disagree

Agree Strongly agree

 

In each of the year group tabs we have summarised parents' responses. We have provided the overall percentage of parents who, in responding to the questionnaire, indicated an 'agree' or 'strongly agree' response.
