We regularly work with parents and the community to seek feedback on the work we do as part of finding ways to improve this. Parents are asked to complete questionnaires and this information is used to identify key actions to improve on. Parent view is an online questionnaire that is used by Ofsted and we encourage parents to use this each year. Please log on to the following website to Parent View: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/register
Alongside this we welcome informal feedback including praise for the great work the school does.
Last year our parents told us they thought:
- Children feel happy and safe
- Children are well looked after
- There is a positive Christian ethos which is recognised by the school community
- The school is welcoming
- Newsletters are informative
They would like us to improve the following:
- Communicating about behaviour, bullying and race so there is a clearer message on this and parents better understand what the school does
- Improve provision for the most able
- Showing more clearly how parent feedback is taken forward
- Clearer information on how to support learning at home
As a result we have taken the following actions:
- Ensure the work we undertake on behaviour and bullying is shared more widely and celebrating further the work on anti-bullying we do each year through newsletters and on the website
- We have separated out the role of “The Most Able (TMA)” Leader and a member of teaching staff leads on this and is developing the work we do further. This is Mrs Eveleigh.
- We have tried to share more feedback solutions through newsletters and the website
- There is information on subject pages and class pages to show how parents can support learning at home. We are also developing the use of Class Dojo as a further communication tool for parents.
