Parent and Student Survey Results - What You Said


We regularly carry out surveys of parents and students to learn what they think about our academy. We ask parents whether they ‘strongly agree’, ‘agree’, ‘disagree’ or ‘strongly disagree’ with statements such as:

  • My child is happy at this school
  • My child is making good progress at this school
  • My child feels safe at this school

We ask students to rate us on statements such as:

  • I am happy to come to school
  • I learn a lot in lessons
  • The academy helps me do as well as I can

Here are the results of our most recent surveys of students in years 7, 8 and 11 and their parents.

Year 7 student and parent survey – December 2016

At our parent information evening in December 2016, we did a survey of Year 7 students and parents to find out how they had settled in and what their experiences were. Feedback from parents was very encouraging, with 100% of those surveyed saying that they would recommend the academy to another parent. 100% also agreed that their child is well taught and well looked after, and that any bullying is dealt with effectively. Of the students that responded, 100% say that they are happy, learn a lot and feel safe at the academy. A few students felt that they wanted behaviour to be better still and as such, we have spoken further to those children to hear their views. Where appropriate, we have acted to address any issues raised. Download the full results (pdf).

Year 8 student and parent survey - January 2017

We undertook our regular survey at the Year 8 parent evening in January. The results from parents portray an overwhelmingly positive picture. 100% of those surveyed say that their child is happy, feels safe, is well taught and is making good progress. The student survey results also show very positive perceptions of the Academy.  100% of students that responded say they learn a lot in lessons, that they receive good teaching, feel like they are being well-prepared for the future and that there are many extra-curricular opportunities that they can get involved with. Download the full results (pdf).

Year 11 student and parent survey - December 2016

At our Year 11 parent evening in December 2016, we surveyed both parents and students about their experiences at the academy. The great majority of responses from parents were very positive, with 95% of those surveyed saying that their child is happy and making good progress at the academy. Student survey results are similarly positive with 100% of students that responded saying that they feel safe at the academy and believe they learn a lot in lessons. As with parents, any pupils who disagreed/strongly disagreed with any of the statements on the survey were spoken with directly so the academy could obtain more detailed feedback from them and act on this feedback. Two such areas are student voice and healthy lifestyles, and these will be a particular focus in coming months. Download the full results (pdf).
