Talbot Primary School values the views of parents/carers and regularly seeks to gain a deeper understanding of what these might be. This helps us to adapt our processes where necessary or share information more effectively. One method for doing this is through regular surveys; however, parents and carers should always feel comfortable to raise matters, at any time of the year, so we can resolve them promptly.
Thank you very much to those parents and carers who completed the questionnaire this year. We received 72 responses from across the school, from Nursery to Year 6 in June 2021.
The responses were overwhelmingly positive; and even more appreciated against the backdrop of such a challenging year in school for all. Please rest assured that all comments are fundamentally valuable in supporting our continuing journey as a school. We aim to be the best we can be, are guided by our commitment to ‘Courage, truth and loyalty,’ and are very appreciative of your support. Many of your comments and responses will be integrated into our ongoing school improvement planning.
You can access the questionnaire results by clicking below, but here are some comments too:
‘Strong sense that the school community worked with dedication and commitment and with the children’s best interests at heart, throughout the pandemic.’
‘So many aspects of Talbot are of a very high standard. Communication with parents, putting the children’s well-being first especially at the moment when anxiety levels amongst families are still high. The resilience shown by staff and pupils has been incredible and a testament to the school management and ethos created.’
‘It’s a really good school and the teachers are lovely and kind. My kids love this school.’
‘My child comes home full of beans…overall couldn’t be happier with the school and the way Talbot has supported children and parents.’
In order to effectively embed and ensure the views of our parents and carers continue to inform our journey as a school, we also establish bespoke working parties. Recent examples include consultation of the proposed changes and updates to Relationship and Sex Education (see PHSE page for more details) as well as a communication group.
