Thank you to the parents who took the time to provide their views via our annual survey this year. Historically we usually receive over 200 responses, so we were a little disappointed to only receive 77 this year, which may mean that the overall responses don’t typify the common view.
However, we are pleased that in the main, the responses were very positive and point to the fact that parents are generally very happy with the provision that their children receive.
As is usual, many parents stated that they didn’t know how well the school deals with bullying and as we have mentioned previously, we believe this is because bullying is very unusual at St Bede’s and as such, most parents have fortunately not had to find out how we address this issue. For further information about bullying, our behaviour policy details how we address it.
We’d also assume that in a similar way, those who said that they don’t know whether the school responds well to their concerns, or whether the school is an inclusive community, did so because they have no direct experience of these issues.
In terms of overall feedback, there were no prominent themes that arose. However some parents felt that communication is strong at St Bede’s whilst a few others felt it could be improved. We are currently looking at this and the possibility of streamlining our ways of communicating to make this easier. More information will follow on this point in due course.
