Views of our Academy- Parent

Thank you for your support by attending our recent Parent Consultation Evenings on Monday 7th March and Tuesday 8th March 2016, I would like to thank the 55.4% (118) of parents/carers who completed and returned Parental Questionnaires. They provide a valid gauge of how well we are serving the families in our local community and also help us to identify ways in which we can improve even further so that all children receive the highest standard of education.

 

I would also like to remind parents/carers that questionnaires are not the only way of sharing your views. My staff and I are always willing to make ourselves available to discuss any questions you may have.

 

Whilst the results highlighted in the table below  show an incredibly positive picture, the academy will always continue to strive to improve further.
