In March this year we sent a questionnaire to every family asking them to tell us what they thought about St Peter's. 78 families returned the questionnaire which is the highest return we have had, so thank you!
We value our parent's opinions and are delighted that so many families are happy with the work of the school.
Here are the results:

We feel that the results are really positive overall and also give us some clear areas that we need to develop.
We are taking a closer look at a couple of areas which families have identified for clarification / development. The first is homework and the second is extra-curricular activities. We shall be inviting further feedback on these shortly.
As a number of areas also suggest parents want to / need to know more, we shall be informing parents about our work on Christian values and how we seek the views of children within school. (As this is something that is done frequently through the use of our school council, pupil attitude questionnaires and pupil interviews, which take place annually with a focus on each curriculum subject.)
