Parent View

Parent View is an online questionnaire that allows parents and carers to give their views about their child’s school at any time. It is also the main mechanism for parents to give their views about their child’s school to inspectors at the time of a school inspection.

 

The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. Ofsted will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect and when. If a parent updates their responses for a school more than once in an academic year, the previous results will be overwritten so that only one ‘view’ for each parent, per school, is held.

 

During inspections, Ofsted asks the Head Teacher to notify parents about the inspection and invite them to complete Parent View. Inspectors will review the evidence from Parent View throughout the inspection to ensure that all online responses received during the inspection are taken into account.

 

The questionnaire can be accessed directly from the Parent View site. Click ‘Give your views’ to register and complete a survey to help our school improve.

 

 

We value feedback from our families and we carry out an annual questionnaire in addition to Parent View.

 

Our most recent questionnaire was completed in March 2017. We received 215 responses.

 

This year’s results are shown in bold type. Figures shown in (brackets) represent responses to the same question in February 2016.
