Every year, we invite you to complete an annual survey of parents and carers. Thank you to the 35 people who completed this year’s survey.
Most of the questions we asked were based on those that Ofsted use for their Parent View. This gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.
We’re delighted that the statements prompted very good responses: at least 97% of those who expressed an opinion responded positively to nearly all the questions, including:
- Is your child happy at school?
- Does your child feel safe at school?
- Does Moortown Primary make sure its pupils are well-behaved?
- Does Moortown Primary have high expectations for your child?
- Is there a good range of subjects available to your child?
- Would you recommend this school to another parent?
We asked if you’re aware of bullying at the school. The majority of respondents were not aware. However, there was a minority who said they were. Our definition of bullying is Several Times On Purpose and our solution is Start Telling Other People. Please do make sure you alert us about any concerns you may have.
We asked if you’ve ever had to raise a concern. We’re pleased that the vast majority who had raised something replied that it was dealt with well – ‘Mrs Weekes will respond to queries and concerns very promptly’ was one comment. As always, please do make sure you raise concerns – your child’s class teacher is usually around at the end of the day, and Mrs Weekes is nearly always at the school gate each day.
The last question was an open-ended one: we invited any comments you may have. There were 18 comments here, and the majority of these were positive – thank you.
Moortown is such a family orientated, caring yet high achieving school. Both of our children are thriving at Moortown and love attending school. The teachers are committed to our children and we feel like they really care about their wellbeing and help them reach their potential. Mrs Weekes is a constant presence and is so approachable and supportive. We feel so lucky that our children attend Moortown.
We’re keen to keep improving. We’ll review the suggestions, which included comments about communications (too many?) and more opportunities for creativity. Mrs Weekes will also make sure staff are aware of the praise they’ve earned.
Thank you to those parents / carers who completed the survey.
As always, please contact us with any questions, comments and concerns during the school year.
