Summary of Questionnaire to Parents at February Parents' Evenings 2017

Dear Parents,

Thank you for taking time to complete the 2017 survey. Since the 2016 survey we responded to your suggestions on how we could improve by:

  • In January 2017 following an unannounced inspection, the school dinner hall and kitchens were rated as 5 star for hygiene and cleanliness! This is apparently rarely awarded so well done to Andrea and her team.
  • Pupils’ being listened to: Learning Leaders, so as well as a Student Council (Miss Killeen), we have Digital Leaders with Mrs Taylor, Music Leaders with Mr Mangan.
  • Workshops for parents on the new curriculum: there have been many in the last year.
