Governors End of Year Report Survey

On Friday 14th July 2017, the board of governors sent out a letter to all parents regarding an online survey requesting feedback on the schools performance for the 2016/17 academic year.

Parental points of view are very important to the school governors and may shape the work they undertake in the future. You can access the survey by following this link:

The survey is a multiple choice format with space after most questions for specific comments if required. The survey should take a maximum of 15 minutes to complete and is completely anonymous.

If parents or carers are responsible for more than one child in the school, they may complete a separate survey for each one. Likewise, parents with different view points may respond independently.

This survey will close at 3pm on Friday 21st July.
