parent surveys - March 2022

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete and return the parent surveys.  It is very important to us to find out your views of the school - what we are doing well and how we could improve further.

Below are a selection of comments made by parents:

My child loves coming to school and we are very happy with his progress in learning.

School have been a great help with supporting my children with their learning.  They love school.

My child has come on leaps and bounds since joining the nursery in January.  He has made friends and is always excited to go.

I am very happy with my child’s schooling.

My family love Stephenson Way school and the teachers.

Thank you for the excellent teaching and support given over the last seven years.

Excellent school!  Very supportive staff – friendly and welcoming.

My child’s SEND plans have been brilliant.  He still struggles but for the first time ever he has two friends.

My child is looking forward to opportunities to go on visits – this has been limited due to COVID.

I only put unsure as I haven’t seen how you deal with concerns, as I don’t have any!

We have also had a few comments, letting us know how we could improve.  These include: restarting trips which were curtailed during COVID, restarting parents evenings and increasing communication about how children are progressing. (We will be sending home a new Spring Term Short Report this Easter, letting parents know in writing how their child is progressing so far this year.)
