FSM Information to follow.
Parent View is used by Ofsted to gain parents views of schools. We ask that you give your views in this way in addition to the surveys that school carries out. All views are important – if you are very pleased or have a concern.
If you do have a concern please share this with the school – partnership is crucial and we aim to address any concern at its very early stages.
Message from Ofsted
Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. If your child is at a boarding or a residential special school, it also asks for your opinion on five aspects of your child’s boarding or welfare. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
