Parent View

What is Parent View?

Parent View is a short online questionnaire that has replaced the paper questionnaires that Ofsted inspectors used to circulate at the time of a school inspection to gather parents’ views. For more information (click here).

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using the online questionnaire.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire.

Please register with an email address and a password at http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as the quality of teaching, behaviour, and whether you would recommend the school to other parents.etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please contact the school and ask.

Parent Survey

On the whole parents feel that their children are happy, safe and well looked after at Pioneer. They feel that their children are well taught and that they receive valuable information about progress and well- being. The vast majority of parents are happy with the progress their child is making, although 1 parent commented that the information received is only from the teachers and not from therapists.

4 parents felt that the question about homework was not appropriate for their child and 1 parent strongly disagreed that their child received appropriate homework. Where answers were negative ‘Disagree/strongly disagree’, the responses were anonymous so unfortunately we are unable to follow these up individually.

There was a high percentage of parents who did not know if the school dealt with bullying effectively. This is probably because the school very rarely has incidents of bullying.

On the whole the responses to the survey questions were very positive, although we must try and get more parents to respond in the future. One parent said that they did not receive a survey to complete.

*4 felt that the question was not appropriate
