Primary School

Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day

Parent Voice

Thank you for completing this year’s parent survey. Your feedback is important to us and very helpful.


I am very pleased that you feel that we are doing so many things well and it was lovely to receive such positive comments. The feedback tells us that we are a welcoming school with a friendly, gentle and approachable staff. Our methods of communication are helpful and regular. The children are safe in school and they feel safe. Parents like our sense of community and we make parents feel part of the school, like a big family. We support all aspects of child development: educationally, physically and emotionally, and wellbeing is high on the agenda. The children are happy to come to school and our decision making is always child centred. It is good to know that so many of you chose our school because of its good reputation.


Our new parents feel that their children have settled really well and that their start to school has been a very positive experience.

We will look at ways to make sure that there is consistency across the classes when sharing information with parents. We will continue to discuss the idea of a social media account as there is still no clear cut opinion one way or the other.


Once again, thank you for taking the time to complete this year’s survey.
