Ofsted are interested in finding out how Parents / Carers view
their school. To do this they have launched an online questionnaire called
Parent View which gives you the chance to tell them and us what you think
about our school.
Parent View asks your opinion on different aspects of our school;
from the quality of the teaching, to how bullying and poor behaviour are dealt
with. By sharing your views you will be helping us to be reflective and look
at how we can continue to improve what we do. This is also a platform which
allows you to see what other parents think about our school.

Ofsted Parent View Frequently Asked
Why does the school want the views of parents and carers?
Parents' and carers’ perceptions are crucial in coming
to a view about the effectiveness of a school. These views will form part
of the jigsaw of information Ofsted use to form an overall assessment of a
school when they inspect and when it comes to making decisions about which
schools to inspect and when.
Are all schools on Parent View?
Yes, but association independent schools do not currently feature
on Parent View.
Why do I have to register to use the site?
This is part of site security. The site requires you to enter
an email address and a password to complete the questionnaire. If you fill
in the questionnaire for the same school more than once using the same email
address, the previous entries will be deleted. So, there will only ever be
one questionnaire from one email address for a specific school in any school
year. The site is also protected from automated form filling software by a
‘captcha’ that asks you to read two words from the screen and
enter them into a box. Other security measures are also in place to identify
What happens if I change my email address?
Once you have registered you will be able to access your profile
page where you can change your email address, password and the number of schools
you have children at.
When can I give my views to Ofsted?
You will be able to submit a survey about the school/s you
child(ren) attend at any time during the school year. If you submit another
survey at a later time in the school year then your previous submission will
be replaced if you use the same email address.
Will my views be anonymous?
Yes, school will not have any access to email addresses or
see who has completed the survey.
Can more than one parent/carer complete the survey for their child?
Yes, if a child has more than one parent/carer then each one
can complete the survey. This is important as they may have different perspectives.
Will I be able to see the results?
Yes, results will be published in real-time and will be available
on the website for you, schools and the general public. However, the results
are not published until there is a minimum number of responses.
What happens if I want to make a complaint about the
Parent View does not replace the current arrangements for raising
a complaint or notifying the appropriate body regarding concerns about the
safety or wellbeing of a child. Please follow our school procedures which
are explained below.
What do I do if I have a concern or worry about my child?
If you have something you wish to discuss with school you should:
1. Arrange to speak to your child's class teacher, in the first
2. If you feel your issue has not been involved, please make
an appointment to see the Head Teacher, Mrs Emma Ross.
