Parent Questionnaires

Governors are keen to talk to parents on a regular basis. Each term the governors and school leaders have a focus and seek the views of as many parents as possible. 

Governors/senior leaders are highly visible at parent's evenings and provide the opportunity for parents to share their views either verbally, through completing questionnaires or through written feedback. Click below to see an overview of parent responses. Here are some of the comments parents have made about Gainsborough.
