Parent Survey

Parent Survey


The 2019 Parent Survey was conducted during the period September 2018 to May 2019.

The set of questions used in the survey were based upon the Ofsted ‘Parentview’ questionnaire which is currently used during school inspections. By standardising the survey, the results can be used as a benchmark to gauge how well the school is performing through a year on year comparison.

A couple of additional questions have been added; the first to allow parents to provide clarity on how they feel the school responds to any concerns raised, and the second to offer an opportunity for parents to provide further feedback to the school, particularly if they have any concerns or suggestions.

Additionally, a ‘don’t know’ box was included to allow parents to indicate their inability to provide a valid rating based on experience or awareness.

The survey achieved an overall 40% response rate (440 completed questionnaires).

Note: On first examination there appears to be lower ratings around how effectively the school deals with any cases of bullying, and on how well the school responds to any concerns raised.
However, it is worth noting the high scores for ‘don’t know’ – 18% and 13% respectively.
