Parent Questionnaire - Autumn 2020

We are continually looking for ways to improve the way we do things at St Alfege and appreciate the feedback we are able to gain from parents and carers as it enables us to be more effective and efficient. Thank you to everyone who responded to our latest survey.

In total we had 64 respondents which equates to 29% of the families in our school. 

The questions asked were as follows:

 

  • What do you think we do well as a school in general? This can be in relation to learning, administrative procedures or pastoral support.
  • What do you think we could do better? This can be in relation to learning, administrative procedures or pastoral support.
  • What do you think we do well as a Church of England school?
  • In the event that our school needs to close again, what else do you think we could do to support your child's learning whilst they are at home?
  • What do you think we did well during the period of school closure due to Covid-19?

 

The results of the questionnaire showed that on the whole, parents were very complimentary on how well the school is doing in providing a rounded education for their children.

We have already begun to address many of the suggestions that were given. For example:

  • A member of the leadership team is on the EYFS gate at least 3 times a week
  • Homework provision is being reviewed and a new homework plan will be implemented this half term
  • The PE and PSHE Leaders are applying for the Healthy Schools Award which has a particular focus on school meals
  • Adaptations have been made to ensure parents are able to remain socially distanced when collecting their children at the end of the school day.
  • A clear Remote Learning Plan has been implemented in the event of whole or partial school closure. This is now on our school website
  • Parent workshops which provide parents and carers with a greater understanding of how they can support their children's learning and well-being

 

To develop our school further we will be :

  • Reviewing our home learning provision to enable all children to extend their learning outside of school in a enjoyable way
  • Continue to ensure our communication to parents is clear, timely and regular so that they are kept up-to-date on what's happening in the life of the school
  • Reviewing our extended school's provision (once the national lockdown is lifted) to ensure there is a greater range of extra-curricular clubs on offer
  • Developing the communication between parents and staff so that they still feel connected to the school in particular during the period of restrictions due to covid-19

Most importantly, we will continue to work with parents to ensure we can provide the best education for their children.
