As part of our recent OFSTED Inspection (March 2024), OFSTED do a parent survey whereby parents can express their views on the school. This survey covers all aspects of school life and plays an important part in forming the judgement on the school.

We got 273 responses following our shout out to parents to complete the survey and the full report can be viewed here.

The OFSTED Lead Inspector was impressed by the results which were as follows:

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “The survey was pretty much as we expected as we conduct surveys through the school year which help inform what we do and where we need to address attention. Of course, we are well aware that we do not get everything right, there is always room to improve, and you cannot please all of the people all of the time. Even so, we know we get a lot right – and the school and OFSTED survey agree. Nonetheless, if you need any extra help or support then just contact us. We are in this to give each child the best deal we can so just let us know what is going awry and we’ll do all we can.”
