Welcome to OFSTED Parent View

For Parents

Ofsted Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think of your child’s school, including:

  • how happy your child is at the school
  • how the school manages bullying or challenging behaviour

If your child has special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), we will ask how well the school supports them.

The questionnaire can be completed at any time - you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.

We will use your responses to help us plan inspections.The information you provide can:

  • inform discussions inspectors have with school leaders during an inspection
  • help Ofsted decide when to inspect a school In addition to this, we also publish the overall summary of the responses to Ofsted Parent View. This information is anonymised.

Parent Survey: April 2019

This year we received a record 415 responses to our annual survey, this number trebled the feedback we received last year!

As you can see from the table below, our annual Parent Survey results were once again very impressive. However, rather than rest on our laurels and be content at the high percentage of you who are happy with our provision, we would like to focus on those of you who are not currently 100% happy.

Therefore, if you are a parent who ticked any of the ‘Disagree’ boxes, we urge you to make contact with the member of our Leadership Team responsible for the particular area that you believe needs further improvement, and discuss your concerns with them. We strongly believe that by working in partnership with you, discussing your individual concerns, we can plan a way forwards together, to further improve our provision in every area.

We look forward to hearing from you.

October 2019 Update…

Thank you to those parents who responded to our request (above), to contact members of our Senior Leadership Team directly to discuss particular areas that you believe need further improvement. We know from feedback, both during and after these meetings, that all parties found this personalised process really beneficial.

Please remember, although this survey took place last academic year, it is never too late to get in touch with us and give us your constructive feedback.

We look forward to hearing from even more of you over the coming month.

Our Parents are very supportive of our school as can be seen by the results of the Parent Survey.
