Parent Voice

At Craven Primary Academy we strongly believe in listening to all our stakeholders. Parents are a crucial part of a child's education and the wider success of our school.

Parents' Evening is always such a lovely opportunity to be able to talk about your children, celebrate what they do and discuss how we can take them even further!  


The feedback from our latest parents evening was incredibly positive and gives the entire staff a sense of pride.

There are a number of ways to let us know your thoughts about our school:


Daily Contact

Each evening the teachers are on their class doors on the playground.  If you would like to speak to the teacher, please allow them to get all of their class safely to the parents, and then please speak to the member of staff.


Make an appointment

Sometimes you may wish to discuss an issue in more depth and we would ask you to either talk directly to your child's class teacher to arrange an appointment or contact the school office who will be more than happy to arrange a suitable time to come in.


Parent Surveys

We carry out annual general surveys to gauge parental opinion on the broader aspects of our school and assimilate these views in to our school development plan. Please see the results of the most recent survey on the 'Academy Profile' tab on the website.


Parent View

Ofsted have their own communication tool which allows parents to record their views about a school. We encourage parents to use this facility to record their views.
