Parent/Carer Questionnaires


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.

Parent/carer Survey - July 2022

Thank you very much to those parents and carers who completed the questionnaire this year.  We received 99 responses from across the school, from Nursery to Year 6 in June 2022.

The responses were overwhelmingly positive; and even more appreciated against the backdrop of a year when we were pleased to re-launch many much missed links with home.  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:

'Communication has been great in terms of what is being learnt, what will be achieved, any updates. I feel that the school provides a fantastic service all round. I cannot think if any improvements that need to be made and very grateful if everyone’s hard work to make it such an incredible school.’

'The school has provided a great educational start for both my children. As my younger child leaves Talbot this summer, I feel sad that we won’t be part of the lovely school community anymore but very thankful for the experience they’ve both had which will hopefully set them up well for the future.’

'It has been wonderful to be able to be back in school for assemblies, choir performances, class trips etc. I have been impressed with how the school, staff and pupils have adapted to the difficulties the pandemic has brought, and it's so lovely to see school life returning to 'normal'. Well done everyone.’

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.
