Parents' Survey 2016

We do work hard to take on board your feedback and we are absolutely delighted that in the majority of areas the proportions of families that strongly agree with the statements has risen again this year. Please click the links at the bottom of this page for feedback specific to your child's year group.

Last year we further investigated your responses with regard to behaviour within lessons; overall your data evidences a slight improvement from 67% to 70% of you agreeing or strongly agreeing that your child’s lessons are not disrupted by bad behaviour. Looking further into the data, the parents who disagree are in 2 classes in particular where we have been supporting pupils with challenging behaviour. We will continue to deploy our own support staff and work closely with outside agencies to ensure behaviour of one or two pupils does not impact in learning. Overall 93% of parents agree or strongly agree that behaviour in school is good, a rise of 4% from last year. Each child’s interpretation of bad behaviour is different and relative to their own behaviour Formal and informal lesson observations by senior leaders evidence at least good behaviour in all lessons. Visitors often compliment our children on their behaviour.

Homework continues to be an area where we receive some dissatisfaction. We continue to work to try to ensure there is a small amount of homework set by class teachers, but a number of opportunities for parents to work further with their children if they wish to through sharing our spelling and maths focuses on our VLE and encouraging daily reading at home. Overall this area of the survey shows big improvements since our work on this area.

The majority of additional comments on surveys were very positive. There was little common ground in the comments; responses to all year group comments is below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to make our GREAT school EVEN BETTER!!
