Introduction

Thank you for taking part in this year's Parent Survey. It's vital that as a school we understand how you feel your child is learning, if they are kept safe and happy, and if they are being prepared to make a positive contribution to society.

The survey is again being run by the Governors, so you have the chance to feedback to them, as well as the staff of the school.

As well as rating questions, you also have a chance to have your say in a free text box. And it is available online to give more parents and carers a chance to contribute.

Some things remain the same though. Your answers are anonymous - and you'll still have the chance to complete a paper version.

Please complete the survey – either online or on paper – for EACH of your children.
