Parent Voice

Parental Voice


There are many opportunities for parents to tell us how they feel about our school, our procedures and our practice. Every term parents will be invited to complete a questionnaire that covers many aspects of school life. The deadline for this survey will be sent out via the school newsletter. The information this provides us with is invaluable in helping us to build on our success. Parental feedback, and actions the school have taken as a result, will be published on this page.

To access the survey please click the link below and complete by your designated date.

In addition to this, each year, we will select a group at random to evaluate and review the transition process between year groups and key stages. Findings from this evaluation help us to improve our practices.

Forum and meetings

Parents are actively encouraged to share any concerns they have as soon as possible with the class teacher, Form Tutor, Head of Faculty, Head of Year or any member of SLT. Our Open Door Policy gives many opportunities for parents to raise their concerns – via email, by telephone or by arranging an appointment. Social media discussions amongst parents rarely get a problem solved or misunderstandings corrected and staff are prohibited from engaging parents and students in this way. We discourage parent’s views on any social media sites and want to ensure that discussions are open and collaborative between staff and parents. Parent’s evenings and other engagements take place throughout the year allowing you to discuss your child’s progress in school.

We would also like to set up a parent forum that will meet once a half term and if you would be interested in attending this and representing other parents please contact Miss Holland or Mrs Handley on [email protected] or [email protected].  Once established we can create a way for parents to contact each other and feedback from the forums will be displayed online.

Keeping up to date

You can also keep up to date with events at the school via the school website (, twitter account (@OATChadwick)  and the various subject / year twitter or Instagram accounts. This is also a way of us sharing some of the excellent work or activities that students are taking part in.
