The views of our parents and carers are paramount to the Academy. They help us be aware of what you think, good or bad, and give us the opportunity to improve systems or just continue doing a good job. After each Academy event we ask parents and carers for their views and we ensure that any concerns parents have are acted upon immediately.
At our Year 9 Parents Evening, held in March, 100% of parents/carers who completed our survey said that their child is making good progress, and that they were satisfied with the opportunities that they had to to discuss their child’s progress.
Parents and carers made some positive comments which included:
“I am particularly pleased with the parent forums and the feeling that if you have any problems/worries you can approach the school”
“I am particularly pleased with how much effort and focus is going into GCSE preparation”
We are proud of our record on parent and carer satisfaction, and constantly strive to develop this even further.
We have set up Parent View which is an online facility that allows you to give your views at any time during the school year. Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. This information automatically goes to Ofsted who will then use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
During events within the Academy we ask parents/carers to complete a standard questionnaire which asks a series of questions to gain your thoughts and views on areas of the Academy. We treat this information in the strictest confidence and use it accordingly. The links below are the information we have received per evening.
