Parent Views

Share your views through Parent View

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

Please register with an email address and a password at http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.

Login easily here: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/register

Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.

Parental Questionnaire

 

We are always trying to develop ways of finding out what parents/carers think about their child’s education, so that we can use this information to make continued improvements.  One approach we are using is a Parental Questionnaire, developed by the local authority and sent to parents in the Autumn term.

 

When we receive the completed questionnaires back from parents, we return the first page with questions 1-23 to the LA; they collate and analyse the responses, and compare our results for us, with all the other schools that are taking part in this important survey. We will then be able to use the results to celebrate areas that parents believe we are doing well in, and consider any areas for development. The second page with boxes for your optional comments is retained in school and does not go to the LA: this extra feedback helps us to understand some of the reasons behind the questionnaire results.

 

We really do value your responses and comments and hope that you can find the time to complete the questionnaire for us; your views are very important.  

In 2016-2017, 16.8% of questionnaires were returned with 11 papers from KS1 and 18 from Key Stage 2 families

 

We are pleased to note the following:

 

Key Stage 1

 

All parents/guardians say they feel welcome in the school.

All parents/guardians believe that their child is safe and well cared for at school.

All parents/guardians believe there are enough opportunities to discuss their child with the teachers.

 

Key Stage 2

All parents/guardians say their child is always learning new things in school.

All parents/guardians believe their child is making good progress in school.

All parents/guardians believe that the school is helping their child to become mature, responsible and independent.

 

We were particularly delighted that in both Key Stages

All parents/guardians say that the school expects their child to work hard and achieve their best.

All parents/guardians say their child enjoys school.

 

 

In response to parents' views, the school continued to work with the Schools' Catering Service to improve the quality of the food on offer at lunchtimes.  We now have a wider range of freshly prepared dishes available to encourage children to try out new food, with unpopular items removed from the menu.  All children can enjoy a themed lunch once every half term and  at break time, the snacks on offer include crumpets, fruit bread and pain au chocolate.  Pupil and parent responses have been very positive!

In 2015-2016, 24% of questionnaires were returned with 27 from KS1 and 21 from KS2 parents.

We are delighted to find that:

 

Key Stage One

All parents/guardians believe their child is making good progress at school.

All parents/guardians say their child enjoys school.

All parents/guardians say that the school works in close partnership with parents.

 

Key Stage 2

 

All parents/guardians say the school helps them to support their child's learning at home.

All parents/guardians say they feel welcome in the school.

A very large majority (95%) of parents/guardians agree that the school provides a range of 'extra' activities outside lesson time.

 

Thanks to parents' comments and suggestions on the 2015-2016 parent questionnaire, we were able to make changes to school meal arrangement.  Junior pupils now pre-order meals to ensure they receive their first choice of meal and we also offer a 'grab bag' service where all children are able to pre order a delicious packed lunch!

 

In 2014-2015, we were delighted that 31.8% of questionnaires were returned at Cuerden Church School compared to the Lancashire average of 29.4% .  As a school, we were particularly pleased with the following:

 

Key Stage 1

Evidence from the Parental Questionnaire shows that;

 

All parents/guardians say their child enjoys school.

A very large majority (96%) of parents/guardians believe children behave well in the school.

 

Key Stage 2

All parents/guardians say that the school expects their child to work hard and achieve their best.

All parents/guardians believe that their child is safe and well cared for at school.

 

Thanks to parents’ feedback and comments on the 2014-2015 parental questionnaire, we have now developed a comprehensive timetable of after-school activities and clubs for our pupils.
