Otford Primary School, Parent Survey 2016
A huge thank you to all our parents who returned the Parent Questionnaires towards the end of term 2 (2016-2017) Thank you to those who attended the feedback meeting which was led by the School Governors earlier in January, for those who were unable to attend, the main themes have been collated below. We are immensely proud of the feedback which serves to highlight how happy both parents and children are here at Otford. There are a few development points which will be taken forward into the School Plan next year.
Many thanks to both the Governors and the Parents of the school.
The 2016 survey differed from previous exercises in an effort to bring it into line with additional themes that Ofsted consider important. Consequently, it is difficult to make precise comparisons with the parent views from before.
158 parents submitted survey returns (which is 57% of the parent body)
Approximately 3000 questions were answered and analysed
Of the 158 submissions, 80 (approximately 50%) also included additional written comments, which proved to be useful additional data
A significant, but not large, number of responses to questions were unanswered or ‘don’t know’ which also provided useful feedback
In general, the statements were worded so that agree/strongly agree indicated positive/supportive responses whereas disagree/strongly disagree indicated parental concerns.
Please open the following Parent Survey doc. for the complete findings.
