Parent Voice

At St. Matthew’s we want to develop relationships with parents so that their voice is used to inform whole school improvement. Our aim is to ensure that parents are treated as partners in their child’s education rather than recipients of a service. In this way we hope to improve engagement in school for parents and their children.

We involve parents in the following ways:

  • Through regular and open communication with form tutors, teaching staff, pastoral teams and senior leaders
  • By asking for their opinions at regular intervals (surveys are taken at parents’ evenings and school meetings)
  • By inviting groups of parents to participate in focus groups to discuss key issues.

We will update this page following Parent Voice activities throughout the school year.

Parent View

Parent View gives you as parents and carers the chance to inform the Academy and Ofsted of your opinions. We would highly encourage you to share your views so we can continue to improve.
