Parents' survey

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

I am writing to you with the results of the most recent parent survey. Thank you to all the parents/carers that completed the survey. For some of the statements I have put the percentage that ticked agree or strongly agree. For some questions I have included the ‘don’t know’ percentage. This shows where the school needs to improve communication with parents. This is particularly true for the statement regarding bullying, 35% of parents/carers were unsure if the school dealt effectively with bullying – below I have explained how the school deals with bullying.
