Feedback from parents is one important part of our self-evaluation process. Pre-Covid, we regularly sought parental feedback on a wide range of issues. Due to the pandemic, we have not carried out the more general survey, but will reintroduce this in 2021-22.
During the pandemic, our parent (and student) voice focussed on the delivery of remote learning and the changes to Parents Evening. This feedback was incredibly useful in helping us to shape our remote learning and ensure that we took the best learning about Parents’ Evenings from the Covid experience.
You can read the feedback and analysis of these consultations here, which show how we use parental feedback:
The summary of our last full Parent Survey is below
We collect parents’ views ourselves rather than through the Ofsted ParentView site so that we can ask a wider range of questions and get comments from parents and carers. Thank you to the 58 people who responded to our recent Parent Survey. This feedback has been useful in monitoring our progress. Several of you took the chance to make comments, which have provided useful specific information.
I am delighted to say that all scores were positive, with many averaging between agree and strongly agree. We improved in 7 out of the 13 areas compared with last year and remained the same in 3 areas. In particular, your feedback shows improvement overall in the quality of teaching, the progress you feel your child is making, the feedback you receive and the quality of leadership.
Last year, you said that more areas than just music and drama would benefit from running enrichment activities. There was an improvement in sporting clubs and competitions last year and the feedback on this has been positive.
There were some very positive comments about the school which were appreciated. Most pleasing was how many of you would recommend Wood Green School to another parent, which has gone from 82% in 2013/14 to 93% this year. Our aim is to continue to make Wood Green a place for happy and successful students and staff, with happy parents. Your support is very important to us.
Thank you again for responding.
