Annual Parent Surveys:

Every year we conduct a parent survey. These are a way of our families letting us know what they would like us to prioritise in terms of the education of their children. The surveys are always completed anonymously. The outcome of the most recent survey can be read from the link below. 

Survey 2024:

This survey was carried out during the Spring term 2024. There were 54 responses, which represented a 26% return rate (206 families). The survey was divided into three sections:

  1. Section 1 with 12 questions aligned to ParentView;
  2. Section 2 (optional) with a further 8 questions about learning in school and at home as well as vision and values of the school;
  3. Section 3 (optional) with 5 open-ended questions.

Summary of Findings:

The overwhelming majority of responses were positive.
98% responded that their child is happy in school.
100% stated that their child feels safe in school (when combining Strongly Agree and Agree as well as Don’t know hasn’t been an issue though).
100% stated that when concerns have been raised they have been dealt with properly.
98% stated that they would recommend the school to another parent.

The lowest ratings were:
91% stated that there are clubs and activities available for their children. (+15% from our 2022 survey)
82% stated that the school teaches their child how to recognise risk to their wellbeing – both online and offline. (-6% from our 2022 survey)
85% stated that they are aware of what their child will learn during the year. (-5% from our 2022 survey)
80% stated that communication from the school is effective and timely. (-16% from our 2022 survey)

Next Steps:

  • Ensure communications with families are in a timely fashion and give as much notice as possible (use of new school website & Arbor as central points of communication)
  • Focus on online safety teaching and workshops with parents/families to help support & navigate this (Use of Digital Leaders to lead workshops and assemblies throughout the year)
  • Review the way in which we communicate what the children are learning throughout the year (Curriculum Maps, Meet the Teacher Meetings, termly planners etc.)
  • Continue to organise a greater range of after school activities and clubs for all ages/abilities and ensure fairness of provision. (Timing of release of booking clubs to parents and looking at club demographic data through Sefton CU dashboard data)
