The Grove Infant and Nursery School

Achieving our potential in our creative learning community

Surveys and Parent View

Every year we ask parents for feedback on aspects of school life and use the information provided to focus improvements.

Feedback is always welcome, so if parents ever want to pass on comments about the way we work we are genuinely grateful - partnership means listening!  You can speak to a member of the Leadership Team informally or make an appointment to come in and meet us.  There is usually someone available immediately, but if not a meeting can be scheduled. 

Parent View

Can you help us?  We would be very grateful if all parents could complete the Ofsted Parent View questionnaire on line.  This is a simple form – largely the same as the questionnaire we ask parents to complete for us in the spring term - that is used by Ofsted to get a snap shot of parental opinion at a school.  Every summer the data is stored, and if sufficient families have gone on line a simple summary is available for parents, prospective parents and Ofsted themselves.

​REMEMBER - Parent View is a way of registering your views, but if you have an issue or a problem at school it is essential that you go and speak to staff about it, either the class teacher or the Head teacher: unless you do so they cannot help you or your child! 

Parent Survey Autumn Term 2021


In October 2021 we asked parents to respond to the Parent View questions.  It is very useful to us as part of our monitoring programme to understand what parents feel we are doing well, and where there is room for improvement.  We read all comments very carefully and use the feedback to shape our actions.  Thanks to all who took the time to fill in the form.  If you are interested, the 'results' are below, including all of the comments.  There was a bit of confusion over a couple of the questions, which resulted in a number of 'not applicable' responses.

Finally, we would always reiterate that if you are unhappy about any aspect of school life you should speak to us!  We can only help if we understand the nature of the problem.  As this survey was anonymous, any parents who disagreed with the statements were encouraged to comment, and to come and speak to us so that we could work together to improve.  As a result of this survey we have reviewed our Behaviour Policy and updated it.  We are aware that COVID has curtailed our extra curricular provision and some aspects of wider personal development, and as soon as we are able we have plans to address this.  You can see that the results are very positive and reflect what we know about our school.
