Parent Survey 2020 and Parent View
An extensive survey of parents was carried out by the Academy in the Spring term of 2020. A range of questions was asked based on those used by Ofsted in their Parent View Survey and comments were invited.
163 parents completed the survey and the results and comments were extremely positive:
95% of respondents agree/strongly agree that their child is happy at school
95% of respondents agree/strongly agree that their child feels safe at school
89% of parents feel that their child is doing well here
94% would recommend this school to another parent
The results of the full survey can be accessed here.
64 parents added comments and these have been very helpful in informing this year’s Priority Objectives which can be found in this Handbook.
Here is a small selection of the many positive comments that were received:
Our child has made great strides in their development, personal, social and educational, which wasn’t happening in mainstream. We cannot recommend Steiner and all staff enough.
I am so, so pleased with this school with three children in three different classes all with very different needs and interests and the school suits them all…. the staff are all honest, kind and passionate about the education system they teach in… the community is wonderful and we are so grateful to be part of it.
Love the school in so many ways. Was sceptical at first but now I think they have been very lucky to have experienced this education. Great school!
I am so delighted for my daughter to be at this school. Children are truly nurtured and protected here and they are supported to learn in the most effective way – from a position of willingness.
It is a wonderful school where adults and older children are great models for youngers, they feel cared for and cherished. Safe place to learn and grow.
Our daughter loves the school and is flourishing. In addition to meeting her educational needs the school is helping her grow into a thoughtful and compassionate individual with the confidence and communication skills to interact with children and adults of all ages. It is one of the most extraordinary aspects of the school.
This school is possibly the finest school in the country. I would move mountains to get my child in here and am grateful she has the privilege to do so.
Thank you all for your warmth and support.
