Family Questionnaire

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

On behalf of the Governing Board and all staff at Newcomen Primary School, I would like to wish you the warmest of welcomes back to the new academic year 2021-2022.  

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your genuine and much-appreciated support during the pandemic and over the last 18th months. We all know it has not been an easy time for anyone.

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to complete this year’s Family Questionnaire. You know me well and you know I read each and every response carefully; all further comments have been noted and are genuinely valued and taken on board.  

296 questionnaires were returned this year (our highest number ever) thank you so much for your time. The staff, our Governors and I have shared the summary of the Family Questionnaire. 

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you for your wonderfully supportive comments; we were really humbled by your words of thanks as they mean the world to us just like our children - our most precious asset.

Please take your time to enjoy reading through the exact wording of the children, parents and carers.

Our Governing Board requested we ask the following questions of our families:

  1. Do you think the school’s communication was effective during the pandemic?

                 100% of responses agreed.

  1. Do you think the safeguarding measures initiated by the school were appropriate?

                 100% of responses agreed.

  1. Do you think the school’s remote provision via See saw was effective?

                  96% of responses agreed (7 responses didn’t know and 5 disagreed)

100% of the children said they felt safe in school and were able to articulate why.

Here are some quotes from Parents and Carers from the most recent questionnaire:

You value all children, respect their individual needs and promote inclusion in every sense of the word. You promote family values.

Communication is second to none – fantastic for planning.  You set high standards and provide the teaching to match.  Believe Achieve Succeed!

All staff give the children their very best – the level of enthusiasm, passion and dedication of all staff is felt from the minute you walk through the door.

I am very fond of the school.  The teachers are brilliant with all the children in their care.  The children all love going to school and are the teachers’ no 1 priority.  Thank you for making school great for my children.
