Parent Questionnaire Findings

3rd November 2017

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the recent on line questionnaire.  Your feedback is greatly valued and your views are taken into account when shaping our School Development Plan.

Overall, parents’ views were positive in all areas. However, there was some concern around the amount of information received about children’s progress, the appropriateness of homework set and the effectiveness of how the school deals with bullying.  Some respondents were unsure about the appropriateness of homework set, whether there is enough information about children’s progress, whether the school is well led and managed (new Headteacher in post), whether school staff respond well to concerns raised and whether the school deals effectively with bullying.

 

Common issues raised in ‘Three things I value at the school’:

  • Broad curriculum
  • Strong sense of community
  • Ethos and values
  • Staff positivity and hard work

 

Common issues raised in ‘Three things I would like to change’:

  • Challenge for high attaining children
  • Homework – appropriateness/amount (mostly in terms of too much but occasionally in terms of too little
  • Meeting children’s needs, particularly those with additional needs
  • More information about progress of children

 

Parents are interested in the success of the new subject specialism curriculum; many are positive about the idea, but are concerned about the impact on the children’s wellbeing, particularly in Key Stage One.
