Survey of Parents and Carers, 2015-16
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are writing on behalf of the Governing Body to invite you to tell us what you think about Stapleford Community Primary School.
We would appreciate it if you would fill in the short survey linked to below. Governors and staff will use the feedback to help develop the school. Your opinion matters to us and replies to this survey can make a real difference to our school.
For example, the 2014-15 survey identified that communication could be improved. A new school website has been launched and is updated regularly with school news, policies, key dates and separate pages for each class. Reception and Year 6 are also using the online learning journals Tapestry and ClassDojo respectively. Termly Parents Forum coffee mornings give parents the opportunity to meet with the Headteacher and discuss plans for the school.
Almost a quarter of parents said they would like more information about the work of the Governing Body. The new website has a dedicated Meet the Governors page (http://www.staplefordprimaryschool.org/meet-the-governors/) and includes information about the work of the Governing Body at http://www.staplefordprimaryschool.org/governors/.
There are two ways to complete the survey:
1. You can complete it online by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/staplefordsurvey
2. If you would prefer to complete a paper copy, please ask at the school office. When completed, please seal it in an envelope marked ‘Parent Survey’ and return it to the school office.
Even if your child has just joined us or is about to leave the school, your opinion is as helpful as everyone else's. The more we know about what you think, the more chance there is that we can do something about it. Don't just discuss it in the playground. Please take a few minutes to let us know!
All parents and carers are invited to complete the survey for each child who attends the school. Please note that the survey should be returned anonymously. Please don’t include your child’s name or the names of individual staff in your comments.
Please return the survey or complete the online version by Friday 18th March 2016. Both the online version and paper copies will be available at the Parent Consultations on 29 February and 2 March.
The School Governors analyse the results in confidence and we will report back to you on our findings in the Summer Term 2016.
We hope that as many parents as possible complete the survey. The more information we receive, the better we will understand what we can do to improve our school still further.
Christine Spain Headteacher and
Clare Arthurs Chair of Governors
