Big Ask Parent/Carer Feedback 2

Big Ask Parent View Survey November 2022

How we engaged

All parents of all students, in every year group, were sent the survey vie email and asked to complete it within a 10 day period.

We asked

We asked all parents questions about key areas of school life, to support us with developing and improving the everyday school experience for all in our learning community. The questions were:

  1. My Child feels happy at this school.
  2. The school makes sure its pupils are well behaved.
  3. When I have raised concerns with the school they have been dealt with properly.
  4. The school has high expectations of my child
  5. My Child does well at this school
  6. I would recommend this school to another parent.
  7. My child has been bullied and the school has dealt with the bullying quickly and effectively.
  8. My child has SEND and the school gives them the support they need to succeed.
  9. The school lets me know how my child is doing.
  10. There is a good range of subjects available to my child at this school.
  11. The school supports my child’s wider personal development.
  12. My Child can take part in clubs and activities at this school.
  13. The school makes me aware of what my child will learn throughout the year.
  14. We asked parents to inform us of their child’s success and achievements outside of school so we could celebrate and reward them.
