It is important for school to listen and act upon the views of our community, as we realise how important it is for us all to work in partnership to promote the best outcomes for our children. We regularly request feedback on various different topics over the school year.
These surveys are very important and the feedback is carefully analysed to ensure that we use this information to create better learning opportunities, experiences and systems in school for all stakeholders.
Ofsted has "Parent View", an online questionnaire that will allow parents and carers to give their views on their child’s school at any time of the year. Covering over 22,000 schools across England, the 12-question survey will help other parents as they make important choices about their child’s education and provide Ofsted with information about schools that will help inform priorities for inspection.
Parent View has been produced with the assistance of a panel of parents who contributed to shaping the questions and the way the site functions. The questionnaire covers a range of topics, including quality of teaching, bullying, behaviour and levels of homework, allowing parents to give a view about their child’s school on each issue, with a final question as to whether or not they would recommend the school to other parents. The questionnaire does not allow free text comments but invites responses to a series of closed questions.
