Parent View

Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education) now have an online questionnaire called ‘Parent View’, which gives you the chance to tell them and us what you think about our school. Parent View asks for your opinion on twelve aspects of our school.

Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

We have provided a direct link to Parent View questionnaire from our web site or you can access it at http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk

We encourage all parents / carers to take a few minutes to complete this valuable questionnaire.

You will need an email address and password for the simple log-in process.

This survey is not designed to receive complaints about schools.  If you do have any concerns please share them with us personally so that we can try to resolve them for you quickly.

If you do not have access to a computer and would like to complete the survey, please contact the school office and we will arrange a suitable time to access a school computer.
