Thank you to all of you who took the time to complete and return the recent Parent Survey.

The results of the survey were shared at a meeting of the Governing Body's Achievement Standards and Behaviour Committee on February 9th 2017 and governors were delighted to see that the vast majority of parents who completed the survey agreed with the positive statements about the school.

In particular, the governors were pleased to note that all respondents felt their child was well looked after at St. Mary of the Angels with 99% agreeing that their child is happy at the school and 98% agreeing that their child feels safe. All but one of the questions received a positive response of over 90% and the fact that 99% of respondents would recommend St. Mary of the Angels school to another parent, is indicative of the continued strong and effective partnership between home and school.

Questions 10 to 15 focus on the Catholic life of the school and the positive response indicates that parents and carers value the Catholic ethos and values of the school, further strengthening the home, school and parish partnership.

Governors noted that Question 9 which refers to bullying had a high 'don't know' response rate which would indicate that the respondents had not had to approach the school regarding bullying or to raise concerns. This was thought to reflect positively on the work of the school in preventing and tackling bullying and working in partnership with parents.  

A paper copy of the results was sent home in February 2017. The results can also be accessed by clicking on the links below. Version A shows the results with categories combined i.e. 'Strongly agree' combined with 'Agree', while Version B shows the response for each category.
