At our recent parents’ evening for Year 8 we asked parents to complete a quick questionnaire. It was good to see that 96% said that they felt their child had made good progress and that 93% felt that they were well looked after, with the same percentage saying that they felt their child was happy at St Chad’s.
Clearly there are concerns about some aspects of our work including homework with 23% questioning the amount given and the monitoring of homework. This is an area we will be addressing immediately. We have also recruited many experienced teachers for the next academic year and are very excited about future developments and our intervention strategies.
Overall the majority of comments in the survey were extremely positive especially about our use of flight paths to monitor progress and the introduction of an online booking system for parental engagement. This was our first event to use the system and 68% said that they found it to be very useful. So thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire and we look forward to your continued support in our next academic year.
