Views of the Academy

Parent Views

Thank you everyone who completed the questionnaire at our recent parents evening – your views of the academy and how we can improve even more are very important to us.  We had a fantastic response and I am delighted with the results which are shown below. As you can see, an overwhelming majority of parents are very supportive of the academy and everything we do here.

Comments received and our response

"The school adapts learning for children with disabilities which I think is awesome!"

Part of our academy vision statement reads - 'where everyone will recognise and achieve their potential and become lifelong learners' so to enable us to do this we ensure we deliver inclusive learning across all our year groups - we are delighted this has been recognised by our parents.

"More stay and make sessions".

It’s great that you enjoy the family stay and make sessions – we do have more coming up very soon! 

"Lovely school, all 3 of my children enjoy going to Grange Lane"

Thank you for your continued support, it is great to know that we continue to provide quality provision across numerous years!

"The school has gone above and beyond to meet my child's needs"

We are a team at Grange Lane and all members of staff work together to provide individual support to enable a child to become settled, make friends, be part of a team, feel safe and access learning on what ever level suits them.

Thank you for your continued support and honest feedback. Please remember, if you have an idea or something you would like to share with us, then please get in touch.

As well as direct feedback to either Mrs Chappell or your child’s teacher, Ofsted now has an online Parent View website which we encourage you to visit. Parent View is the main route for parents and carers to give their views to Ofsted during a school inspection and at any time of year. It features 12 questions that cover a range of issues important to parents and schools. Once a small number of surveys are completed, the results for the school are visible in Parent View
