Parent Survey - Your Comments

Autumn 2023

We are hugely proud and heartened to receive such positive feedback from our parents, thank you to everyone who contributed to our Autumn Term Parent survey.

We are delighted to share some of the highlights from the survey and the actions we are taking as a result of the parent feedback.

What our parents say…

  • 97% said their child is happy in our school
  • 96% said their child feels safe in our school
  • 95% said their child is taught well in our school
  • 98% said the school is led and managed effectively
  • 97% said their child does well in our school
  • 94% said that school supports wider personal development
  • 100% said they are satisfied with the out of school provision
  • 97% said the school’s values and vision are communicated clearly

Feeling safe and happy is at the forefront of everything we do. When children feel safe learning and achieving becomes limitless.

What do we do well, you said:

Getting to know the children personally.

They have a wide range of resources They support my child to develop his skills They inform me if there is concerns.


Wide range of opportunities for the children.

Communication, sport provision, teaching.

The school is nurturing and inclusive in terms of sport. Good presence on social media. Good community links.

A good range of after school activities.

Deliver a varied curriculum Offer plenty of extracurricular activities.

Variety of subjects for children to learn and enthusiastic and passionate teachers and staff.

Everything, my daughter is very happy and so are we. We feel if we need to discuss anything there is always someone available and my daughter is always beaming when she comes home.

We like how teachers and headteachers all seem to get to know my child. I think this personable relationship helps him feel seen, safe and he feels a mutual respect. I also like how he is encouraged by the multiple reward system. He has learnt boundaries from them and also encourages enthusiasm.

Communication, how the teachers are with students and parents so caring and helpful.

Encouraging students to be the best they can be.

The school provides a well set up provision to promote great learning and achievement. It has a strong leadership team, with clear goals and clear standards for staff. We are very happy.

Their approach to teach maths and phonics because my son has made such an improvement since starting school.

I like the way the school teaches the students to be independent and have responsibilities for themselves and classmates.

Provides outstanding extra curriculum and sporting opportunities.

Supporting children with additional SEN needs.

Having only just moved to the area and my son has only been attending the school since middle of September. The school does well with communication and helping new families who've just moved into the area. With no family support network, I found they were very welcoming and helpful with getting my child into school.

Everything and all staff are friendly and easy to approach.

Extra-curricular activities (after school clubs).


We are listening

Through the survey and your comments, we have recognised there is improvement/better communication to be made with the following: 

Suggested improvement

What is currently in place

Further action

Further improve communication.

Three Parent Teacher Consultations throughout the academic year.

Two reports shared – Mid-Year and End of Year Report.

Wider curriculum communication- we feel this is a strength of the school through our sharing of termly class newsletters (which include learning topics) and also the regular updates on our Facebook page so that people at home can see what exciting activities the children have been engaged in, both in and out of the classroom.

We have also hosted parent evenings (both online and in school) for phonics and early reading in FS and Class 1.

With a school of 200 children and large class sizes in almost every year group, it would be a challenge to try and regularly communicate regarding every child’s individual learning in an official capacity.

We do apologise if, on the odd occasion, some communication has gone out a bit late. We are just so busy in school and want the children to engage in as many positive wider learning experiences as possible. We do try to communicate as early as possible.

Should you ever require further information or an update about your child’s learning, at any point in the academic year, then please do contact your child’s teacher and they will be happy to provide you with an update.

There were two comments about wrap around care for Busy Bees children

Last term I wrote a response to a parent who had very politely requested this provision.

Unfortunately, there are a number of difficulties involved in including preschool children in our wrap around care. These include supervision ratios, availability of adults with the appropriate qualifications to look after 2-4 year olds and the physical space needed to include them in this provision.

I am sorry that we are not able to offer this within our wrap around provision at this time.

If there was a demand in regular numbers for this provision, then this might help us in the future with trying to include our preschool children within wrap around care. Please do let us know if this is something that you would be interested in.

Weekly BOS Kids menu being shared (two comments).

There is a 3-week menu rota for BOS kids. This is on display on their noticeboard and is also available on our school website:

Brompton-on-Swale Church of England Primary School - Snack Menu (

Having looked at the menus, there appears to be a good balance of healthy food/ options available.

Please note that, due to the flexibility of booking BOS Kids’ provision for parents (i.e. in emergency parents are able to utilise this provision), this may sometimes affect what is on the menu and changes may need to be made due to higher numbers on one evening.

Finally, please remember you can always contact your child’s teacher or a member of the senior leadership team via the school office if you have anything you wish to discuss.
