We are very grateful to our parents who have completed our annual parents survey, which provides invaluable feedback and ideas for improving the children’s education experience. We place a great emphasis on regular review and improvement, with input considered carefully from all of our key stakeholders and this is factored into the planning for the following academic year.
Even in these extraordinary times of COVID-19, the annual BPET Parental Surveys were sent, because we did have 7 months of the academic year in school before lock-down and we have received very positive feedback across our eight schools.
Overall, we are delighted to say that 97% of parents agree or strong agree that their child enjoys coming to school and 94% of respondents would recommend a BPET school to their friends – which is better than the excellent feedback as we received last year.
Across BPET, parent’s responses show they are very happy with their child’s education, across the eight schools and in addition:
- 98% of parents and carers strongly agree or agree that their school’s values and attitudes have a positive effect on their child
- 97% of parents and carers strongly agree or agree that their school develops their child’s independence and responsibility
- 95% of parents and carers are satisfied with the leadership and management of their school
These positive responses are a testimony to the hard work and dedication put in by staff teams across the year for the benefit of our 2,000 pupils. The results are all higher than previous years; even though our schools continue to grow every year so a wider cohort of families across the trust and the recent weeks of home remote learning.
All schools have written to parents, setting out the areas that have been identified for improvement. These include ideas for extra-curricular clubs next year, better communication with parents, especially where information is about pupil’s performance and outdoor learning which includes both sports provision and ideas like forest school.
To emphasise these positive survey outcomes, parents created testimonials they are happy we share across our trust, below:
Braywick Court School is an absolutely fantastic and unique school with the most wonderful, dedicated and caring teachers I have seen. So much hard work and passion has been put into making the school what it is today and we are very lucky to be able to send our children there. They have proved during this very difficult and challenging lock-down period just how amazing they are for so many different reasons.
Deer Park School is an ‘Outstanding’ local school, bringing together families and local community. All pupils are nurtured and encouraged to excel, whilst they develop valuable life skills and a real enthusiasm for learning. My children cannot wait to be in the new building where we know so much more can be achieved with a larger space inside and out.
We ‘love’ Evendons Primary School, the ethos, teaching staff and community around the school have created a varied, inspiring & interesting learning environment that our girls love and are always positive about attending school. Children are seen as unique individuals & are encouraged to develop their interests & skills. Evendons nurtures & cares for each child always putting the child’s needs first above box ticking. It has been wonderful to watch our girls develop the school and believe that they will leave the school as well rounded individuals.
