Parent and Pupil Questionnaire Feedback

Spring Term 2021/22

Questionnaire Feedback

Thank you to everyone who completed our annual Parent Questionnaire at the start of the Spring Term 2022. We are delighted by the responses and comments we received. It is good to see that the hard work that goes on at school has been recognised. We very much rely on this process as a way of evaluating the performance of our school for the last year and have identified strengths along with aspects that we will continue to work together to develop. We feel that it is important that the responses are fed back to you as parents, to keep you informed. We also thought that it was important to share the responses from our Pupil Questionnaire too. You will hopefully see how these have been used in focusing our future developments for the year ahead.

Future Developments

  • Teachers to provide additional academic progress report during Spring 2022, ensuring that families are kept fully abreast of their child’s current attainment and progress.
  • Use of Class Dojo across the school to be honed and more consistent across Key Stages.
  • To increase opportunities for parent involvement on school site (Celebration of Work, Art Gallery, Information Evening etc.)

During school closures in January 2021, we surveyed our parents/carers to provide the schools with feedback on the remote learning provision in place.

We had 265 respondents in total.

Over 90% of parents across the Federation felt that the remote learning provision had been of high or very high quality.

Over 96% of parents were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of communication from the school during school closures.

We provided 19 families with devices during school closures, and supported 4 families to access increased data allowances.
