Please use the link above to complete the Parent View Questionnaire from OFSTED
At St. Matthew's we ensure regular and consistent communication with parents. As such we regularly seek feedback from parents on ways to improve our school in addition to what they think works well.
Many thanks to the parent who took the time to complete our latest parental questionnaire at parents' evening, with 81 responses. Here our some of the main findings from Mr Hassan's (School Governor) report:
- the school was praised for the quality of teaching and for parents being able to discuss their childs progress.
- parents were happy over lunchtime arrangements and staff being helpful and listening to their concerns.
- parents were happy for the dedication and management of the welfare of their children. Secondly the school was strongly recommended for its safety, progress, caring and the children being well taught. Furthermore good standards of behaviour was praised and the parents were very pleased with the support of the child's learning and responding well to their concerns.
Issues for consideration include: more homework, more sports after school, more information on the new curriculum, outbreaks of headlice, ensuring discipline is of the highest standards both in class and on the playground.
All these areas will be discussed at the next governors meeting.
Come back soon to see how we plan on acting on some of the findings
