Parents' Views of the School

Our most recent Parent Survey was undertaken in October 2022. The headline results of this are available below. 
 
There are so many positive responses in most areas of the questionnaire and the vast majority of parents are very happy with what the school provides. Thank you to all parents who took time to complete the survey. In the Spring Term 2023, I will be holding workshops for parents where I will be sharing the results from the parent survey in more depth and communicating how we have acted towards development points suggested.
 
Below are some comments received in response to the question
