Parent Voice Feedback
Dialogue between home and school is essential to make sure that students achieve their best.
Throughout the year parents are welcome to contact subjects teachers or Achievement Co-ordinators/Form Tutors as relevant by telephone, and the “Creating Futures” progress monitoring system.
Parent Consultation Evenings take place once a year between parents and subject teachers. These run from 4-7pm and are on the calendar on the web site. Additionally, Year 7 parents have a meeting in November where they meet their Form Tutor to discuss how students have settled into the Academy.
Throughout the year, special parent information meetings are offered for different year groups addressing issues such as options, introduction to GCSEs, revision skills, online safety etc. These are advertised on the web site and through letters home.
Exit questionnaires are taken at all Parent Consultation Evenings. The questions are based around the Parent Voice questionnaires used by Ofsted to gather parent views at inspections.
Following the Parent Consultation evening, feedback is immediately gathered and any issues or comments which are followed up immediately by the Achievement Co-ordinator. The questionnaire also asks if any extra contact is required throughout the year from subject teachers, which is also communicated to those subject teachers within a day of the Parent Consultation evening.
