Parent view - let us know what you think
Hope Hamilton Parent Survey June 2016
Letter to parents:
24th June 2016
Attached to this letter you will find a parents’ questionnaire.
This is based on the Ofsted questionnaire which parents are asked to complete prior to an inspection. However, as Governors, we would like to explore your views a little further, especially, being a Church school, with regard to the Christian ethos and how the school can work with you in the future to support children’s learning.
We would therefore be extremely grateful if you could take five minutes to complete the attached questionnaire and return it to the school by Friday 8th July. You may either hand it to the class teacher or office staff or place it in an envelope addressed to the Chair of Governors, in which case I will treat it in confidence. You can, of course, choose to complete the survey anonymously, if you prefer. We have also placed a version on the website if you prefer electronic copies that can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are constantly striving to work with the school to improve all aspects of provision for your child. Your feedback is essential to help us to achieve this. Please make five minutes in your busy day to fill in the form and return it to school, so Governors can work more directly with parents.
Chair of Governors
Ofsted has launched Parent View, a new online questionnaire that will allow parents and carers to give their views on their child’s school at any time of the year. Covering over 22,000 schools across England, the 12-question survey will help other parents as they make important choices about their child’s education and provide Ofsted with information about schools that will help inform priorities for inspection.
Want to take a look?
You can access the site at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/ after which you’ll be able to search for results for schools or if you have children attending a school, register to complete a questionnaire.
The questions have been carefully chosen to cover those issues that parents have told Ofsted are the most important to them. They are also designed to provide Ofsted with the information to support decisions about inspection and will give headteachers a direct route into gathering the views of their parent group.
Launching Parent View, Baroness Sally Morgan, Ofsted Chair said: ”Parent View will give mums and dads a voice and will give Ofsted important feedback about their children’s schools”
We hope you find the new ‘Parent View’ service useful, if you’d like to tell us what you think of the new service, please use the contact us page
It doesn't take long. Log onto the ofsted site and take just a few minutes to answer 12 very important questions about your child's education. We really want to know your views.
Please don't forget though, that if you have a problem we want to do everything we can to help resolve it. Please contact us so we can help.
