Parent and Carer Questionnaire
87 Parent Responses were received via the online link.
Although the responses were fairly evenly spaced from throughout the school, the most were received from Reception Class Parents/Carers - 16.09% - and the least were received from Nursery Parents/Carers - 10.34%.
Interesting focus areas are:
Question 6: My child receives appropriate homework for their age.
As there were significant changes during the academic year of 2017-2018 that concerned the setting and marking of homework, this question is well-positioned to capture the current parental/carer view.
85% of our parents and carers are satisfied with the current homework arrangements.
A total of 12 people, representing 13.7% of the sample, disagreed with this statement, with one person remaining ‘Not sure’.
Question 8: This school deals effectively with bullying.
This question has generated the most ‘Don’t know’ responses with 38 which represents 43.7% of the sample. This may be because parents/carers have not been involved in such an incident and therefore do not know that we do have a strict Anti-Bullying Policy. As a result of this survey, we have therefore decided to forward the Anti-Bullying Policy to each family. We will also include it in the New Parents pack in the future.
