Parental Questionnaire

Morley Memorial Parent Survey 2017: results

In July 2017, we invited feedback from parents through our annual parent survey.  In total, 134 surveys were completed, which was lower than in previous years. The survey comprised 21 questions, which were mainly the same as those asked in 2015 and 2016 to allow year to year comparisons. A summary of the results of the survey can be viewed by clicking on the link below and the full results have been considered by the Full Governing Body.

Summary of 2017 Parent Survey

Overall the results were at least as positive or even more so than in 2016, and compared favorably with national benchmarks. For example, the vast majority of parents (90%) reported that their child was happy at school; that they would recommend the school to family and friends (92%); and that they were satisfied with their child’s progress at school (95%).

We saw significant increases in satisfaction levels with the quality of teaching (93%) and positive perceptions of behaviour (90%), along with a reduction in the reports of experiences of bullying.

As well as providing numbers, the survey gives parents an opportunity to write comments on the questions asked, and on any other issues they want to raise. We received hundreds and hundreds of comments, which the Governors and the school leadership have reviewed in detail. Again, these were overwhelmingly positive, but there was also lots of good and challenging feedback for us to work on.

The parent survey is just one of the ways that we gather feedback on what’s happening at Morley.  The school leadership and Governing Body work hard to make sure that we regularly gather feedback formally and informally from parents, pupils, and staff. If you have any questions or ideas, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
