Every year, Long Close School conducts its Voice of the Parent survey. The feedback received in the survey highlights those areas of the school that are thriving and directly influences the School’s improvement strategy.
In the 2021 survey, 41.7% of parents who completed the survey scored the School as 9 or 10 out of 10. Areas that have received the highest level of improvement compared to last year include pupils’ learnings needs being met; accessibility of Leadership Team and teachers; recognition that school is a healthy and safe environment, and the school enables children to develop skills for the future.
