Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. This survey is not designed to receive complaints. If you wish to make a complaint or have a concern, please contact the school directly. Submit Parent View Online Questionnaire

Parent Forum

Parent Forums are the opportunity for Parent/Carers to have their voices heard; to find out what’s happening in school and to be part of the response to any developments in our school community. We have members of the Senior Leadership Team present and plan to have guest speakers on topics such as CSE, transport and out-of-school activities. All parents and carers of pupils attending the Fountains Federation are welcome to be part of the Forums.

  • Parent Forum facilitates regular, open communication and is designed to be collaborative, constructive and transparent
  • It is a body which can feed in views and represent the parents and carers of issues surrounding the school
  • It gives you an opportunity to get together on a regular basis with other parents to have your say on what the school is doing well, and ideas of how you feel things could be improved
  • It can help you get the advice and support to help and encourage your children achieve their potential
  • It can break down barriers between the school and parents and improve working relationships
  • The forum is not in place to address specific concerns about an individual child or issues relating to individual members of staff. If you need to discuss these issues, please approach the school directly.
