We had a 25% response rate to our recent parent survey, 24 replies in total, for which we are very appreciative. Below is an initial summary and first thoughts.
Communication was seen as overwhelmingly positive (17 – ‘completely’, 6 – ‘mostly’), however additional comments and one reply of ‘not at all’ indicated that varying the communication frequency, means and message, making it more individual and better coordination of contact would have helped. We are pleased to report that Microsoft ‘Teams’ meetings has now been introduced.
Support was deemed sufficient (19 – ‘completely’, 3 – ‘mostly’, 2 – ‘at times’) and we in turn thank everyone for their messages of thanks to the teachers for their amazing efforts.
Remote learning material rating was favourable (18 – ‘completely’, 3 – ‘mostly’, 2 – ‘at times’). It was clear that some families felt able to access different and supplementary material whilst others had limited access online and struggled with excessive printing. From the start, the school tried to strike a balance due to the wide variety of home circumstances and the ‘too little vs too much’ views demonstrated clearly what a difficult task this is. As this is likely to be a feature of schooling for some time to come, the school will continue to develop its remote provision and this initial feedback is extremely useful.
Special Educational Needs was only relevant to one reply and this will be followed up separately.
In line with the individual questions the Overall average rating was 3.67 out of 4 and 96% of respondents were satisfied.
Thank you for all those willing and able to contribute. The school welcomes constructive feedback at any time and parents are encouraged to speak with their child’s class teacher at an early point if there are any questions or concerns. Your support with future questionnaires and parental meetings would be greatly appreciated.
