Parent view has changed!
You can give your opinions of our school through the Ofsted Parent View site and will see if you have done this before, that the questions are slightly different. The new format is like this:
Ofsted Parent View questions
The survey asks parents to respond to 14 statements and questions.
1. My child is happy at this school.
2. My child feels safe at this school.
3. The school makes sure its pupils are well behaved.
4. My child has been bullied and the school dealt with the bullying quickly and effectively.
5. The school makes me aware of what my child will learn during the year.
6. When I have raised concerns with the school they have been dealt with properly.
7. Does your child have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)? (yes or no)
If yes, the survey asks parents how strongly they agree with this statement: ‘My child has SEND, and the school gives them the support they need to succeed.’
8. The school has high expectations for my child.
9. My child does well at this school.
10. The school lets me know how my child is doing.
11. There is a good range of subjects available to my child at this school.
12. My child can take part in clubs and activities at this school.
13. The school supports my child’s wider personal development.
14. I would recommend this school to another parent. (yes or no)
Unless otherwise specified above, all the answer options to the statements are:
- strongly agree
- strongly disagree
- don’t know
For statement 4, ‘My child has been bullied and the school dealt with the bullying quickly and effectively’ parents can also select ‘My child has not been bullied’.
For statement 6, ‘When I have raised concerns with the school they have been dealt with properly’ parents can select ‘I have not raised any concerns’.
We would love you to take the survey if you have 5 minutes? Just google Ofsted Parent View and you will find it easily. You can do it at any time and more than one parent can take part too.
Ofsted take notice of parents’ opinions of their school and we can only gauge how happy / satisfied/ concerned you are if we get told.
Can I just ask that if you have a major concern about anything connected with school though, that you come and see me first so that it can be dealt with rather than letting us hear about it first through the delights of Social Media or through a complaint to Ofsted. We really do want to make school as good as we can for all of our children and are open to hearing any suggestions that you have. Please come along to PIP on the 27th if you have great ideas for us.
