2019 Parental Perception Survey Results

Parental Perception Survey Autumn 2019


The Ofsted Framework for Inspection of Schools continues to encourage parents to give their views online about how they perceive the school functions. As there is less than twenty-four hour notice of an inspection, the Head asked parents to fill out a hard copy at Pupil Progress meetings. The intention is to gauge the general overview of parental feelings and give time to respond and address any areas of concern.


120 questionnaires were handed out and 84 families responded. A representative 70% return. The questions relate directly to the child’s feelings about school and a focus on the school’s performance in general.
