Parental Feedback 2015 - 2016

At every parent consultation evening throughout the year 2015 – 2016 the Academy seeks the views of parents and carers on how we are doing.  Questions range from the quality of teaching pupils receive, the progress pupils are making, how safe pupils feel as well as how well led the Academy is.  Any self-reflective organisation needs to evaluate how well it performs and needs to put in place steps to improve.  We are committed to continuous self-improvement.  Your feedback is important to us. 

Please see below a summary of your responses for the academic year 2015 – 2016.  Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaires and your support throughout the year.

Christmas Jumper Day and the Parent Voice Christmas Raffle

On 20th December, the Academy celebrated Christmas with a range of activities and events for students and staff throughout the day. 

For a £1 donation, students could wear a Christmas jumper under their blazers (this is in place of their Academy jumpers). Proceeds go to a charity decided by Student Voice. 

Parent Voice also held their Christmas Raffle in the afternoon.  Tickets for the raffle were priced at £1 per strip and proceeds went towards the Academy. Prizes were kindly donated by local businesses and included a laptop, trainers, cinema tickets, beauty treatments and gift vouchers for a variety of high street stores.

This all coincides with Chartwells' Christmas Dinner, which was a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. The Christmas Dinner costs £2.90 for all staff and students who are not on Free School Meals.

We look forward to an exciting and festive end of term!
