All parents were given the questionnaire but fewer response sheets were completed at parent consultation evenings than on a previous occasion and not so many were returned the following day. The results therefore may appear more negative than last year and include more of a range of answers to neither agree or disagree. There has been a positive response to lines of communication including use of the website. Many of the responses are in line or very similar to last year however there is a significant increase that the Federation with BB is giving positive experiences. This has followed on from more joint activity days and class visits .It is also pleasing to see that there has been an increase in number of parents knowing more about how to contact a governor and their responsibilities.
