Dear Parents, Carers,
Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
I thought you might like the results of the independent survey we asked you to participate in recently.
We take your views very seriously and cannot thank you enough for participating in the survey.
Importantly the top three priorities for importance according to you (2014) were academy discipline, happiness of child and control of bullying. In 2013 you also included teaching quality in the top three instead of happiness of child, which has been highlighted this year. We promised you that we would strive to reach outstanding in all three top criteria from 2013 and we have achieved just that. We have also managed to achieve an outstanding grade in happiness of child which is in this year’s top three.
As the Principal, I shall continue to work at communication which was identified as a top priority for improvement for parents and keep you informed of what we are doing! We now have twenty-six methods of communication that we use to contact/communicate with parents/carers and hopefully there will be at least one method that will suit you.
Our Heads of Year and Heads of Department will continue to improve their response time in getting back to you. If at any time you do not receive a response back from our staff within two working days please contact my P.A., Mrs. Smith who will inform me and I shall contact you within 24 hours.
Again, I think overall you should be very pleased with the results of the survey and I can’t thank you enough for helping to make our academy one of which we are all proud of.
