Annual Parent Questionnaire

Annual Parent Questionnaire

 

 

Thank you to all who took the time to complete and return our annual survey. The results are available to download below and a comparison with previous years is there too for completeness. We are very pleased with the positive response, but we will not be resting on our laurels.

Governors and leaders will be looking at the results in detail in the coming days and weeks and will come back with requests for further information.

COMMENTS

 

Any concerns with [child] or worries please contact me straight away, great ideas with Drawing & Talking seems to help.  Kind regards.

I am very happy with the transition my son has made to Year 7.  He has been well prepared and supported from the first day.  I am very grateful that he was offered a place at Carwarden House and I am excited about his continuing education with you.  I don’t think there is a better school for him anywhere and it has renewed my confidence that he is so well looked after and even though we have hit some bumps in the road during this settling in period and I have received the occasional dreaded phone call, I feel his teachers have dealt with each one well and I always feel informed and that I have been listened to.  Thank you.

I have asked many times for reading books and have not received one at all this academic year. I have now purchased my own which I do at home with [child].  Knowing that parents are the first educators and what happens in the home has more influence than at school I was keen to support his reading and comprehension.  Working in a school has given me the knowledge to do this.  If I hadn’t I don’t believe [child] would have the ‘have a go attitude’ he now has.  Other than the reading I think your school is amazing, the staff and children are extremely lucky to be part of the safe caring community.  Thank you.

I appreciate my circumstances are unique living abroad.  And the Parentmail system is good in that it keeps me aware of general issues at the school.  Though hard copies of assessment and other items are provided to [child’s] mother, it would be great if I could receive by e-mail any matters specific to her, such as an assessment report.  I am keen to maintain as much involvement in my child’s education as is possible in my circumstances.
