We achieved an excellent survey response rate of over 70%.
The findings supplied us with all of the insights to meet our original research objectives, as well as supplying us with other valuable observations. Parents were particularly keen to tell us what they were actively looking for in a school and the areas where they would most like to see future investment.
Overall, Saint Bede’s received excellent satisfaction ratings and this reinforced the very high standards held by the school. Constructive parent feedback was also received, some of which will lead to immediate school improvements. A significant number of the parents went into great detail with their comments – and this illustrated that they clearly appreciated the opportunity to be involved with the school and have their voice heard.
A small selection of the Verbatim comments:
What are the main things you are looking for in a school?
“A nurturing environment And teaching that is driven by my child”
“Friendliness and warm atmosphere – as well as a good academic record“
“Bringing out my child’s personality and academic grades”
“This survey has covered everything, thank you for listening”
“It’s an amazing, caring school. I only wish that it continued into key stage 4”
“I’ve seen far too many schools which talk about my children being a right fit for them, Saint Bede’s is the right fit for my children!”
