Ofsted Parent View

Ofsted's Parent View allows parents and carers to express their views anonymously about this school at any time of the school year. Parent View has replaced the paper questionnaires that inspectors used to circulate at the time of a school inspection to gather parents’ views. Please remember that we encourage each parent in a family to submit their views.

At the time of an inspection, you can refresh or resubmit your views and the facility will overwrite your previous response so that only one ‘view’ for each parent, per school, is held.

Inspectors will consider parents’ views alongside other evidence when making a judgement about a school. It is also useful for us because it gives valuable information about what you think of the school and helps us to improve.

To complete the short questionnaire at parentview.ofsted.gov.uk you simply need an email address and a password to register. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to choose answers to 12 short questions about the school, such as how well we deal with bullying, the quality of teaching, whether the level of homework given to your child is appropriate, and whether you would recommend the school to other parents.

Please remember that Ofsted strongly encourage that the first point of contact regarding any complaints or issues should be with the school.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
