As an academy, we value the opinions of all our parents/carers.  A parent/carer survey provides an excellent opportunity to hear these opinions and for improved dialogue between parents and school.  We are very interested in what you have to say and conduct several surveys throughout the year.  If you would like to share you views at any other time, please contact the Head Teacher who will be happy to meet with you.
