During the final part of the summer term, The Hayes sent out a parent questionnaire which was advertised in the HT newsletter, Twitter, bulletins and on our Facebook pages. 60 parents completed the questionnaire. Once again, we received a lot of written feedback - both positive and constructive. Where the development areas double, we have added to the School Improvement Plan. Overall, an increase in all agree/strongly agree areas from the 2015-16 questionnaire which is excellent news and far more consensus about the school’s strengths, with particular mentions for our close knit community, caring and enthusiastic staff, our enriched curriculum and the warm, inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. As one parent commented, ‘The Hayes is a wonderful school, with a great learning environment. There is a buzz of energy every time you walk in, with kids involved in extra – curricular activities or something happening with the parents.’
Particular areas identified for improvement related to improving communication and feedback, homework and behaviour consequences. This will feed into further discussions with staff and governors and is addressed through our school improvement plan and updated policies.
We are extremely grateful for the ongoing positive feedback which we receive during the year either via email or in person. If you have any further comments or suggestions to make, then do contact me, a member of SLT or one of the parent governors. We’d love to hear from you.
