To submit your own views about Castle Hill School please visit Oftsed’s Parent View website.

Our Parent and Carer surveys provide us with vital information regarding how you as parents and carers feel about your child’s education and the school. We asked you to comment on your levels of satisfaction on a number of criteria, based partly on the questions used by Ofsted for their Parent View. We value this information and where there are concerns we follow this up immediately. The latest survey was sent out in February 2017 and over half of our families responded.

Here are our latest findings from the Parent and Carer survey 2017.

Some comments from this year’s survey:

  • Staff in class are brilliant, they communicate well with both my child and me.
  • My child loves school and would make it known if she wasn’t happy. If I have ever had a problem staff have always got it sorted quickly and efficiently.
  • I have experienced several schools with my child and I have to say this is by far the best school she has attended the school staff and pupils are all a credit to each other.
  • Thank you for looking after my child.
  • School is amazing. I have always been totally confident of their ability to encourage the greatest results from my child.
  • Our son is very happy and settled at school, which is the most important thing for us as parents.
  • Very happy, love the school and staff!
  • We are very happy. Our child very happy to come to school.
  • The school is amazing. Since my daughter started she is so happy and understands that she is getting in her wheelchair to go to school.
  • Lovely school, I wish my child could’ve come earlier in her education.
  • All the staff at the school have supported throughout my child’s attendance at the school for which we are very grateful. Thank you.
  • I am so pleased that my daughter attends Castle Hill School, she really enjoys her days there and also her new friends.

Here are our previous years’ findings: Parent and Carer survey 2016 and Parent and Carer survey 2015.

We are very pleased to get positive feedback, but we also value hearing about any problems that may have arisen. The Parent and Carer survey is anonymous so although we would wish to work through any issues, we can only do so where parents have put their name. If any family would like to give us further feedback or clarify any issue, we are happy to hear from you.

We also gave a brief questionnaire to parents and carers at a recent Parents’ evening in order to garner opinions on our new Report Format. Find out the results here.
