Number of Respondents

Marine Park 213 (42% return) so 1 respondent = approx 0.5%

North Tyneside Total (16 Schools took part) 1221 (28% return) less MPFS 213 = 1008 respondents so 1 respondent= approx 0.1%

National Parent View=(3.1%  response rate) 237906 submissions made to OFSTED Parent View Website between 1/9/15-31/8/16

We were pleased that the response rate was much higher from Marine Park parents/carers than the Local Authority and OFSTED Parent View average. Thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaires. We were also very pleased to note the high % of parents/carers that strongly agreed with the statements. This is consistently higher than the Local Authority and OFSTED Parent View totals. Further to this, it was satisfying to note the 0% disagreement  to statements 2, 3, 4 and 5 which are central to our ambition for children to be safe, well taught and progress well. Only a very small proportion of respondents disagreed with any statements.

The results for This school deals effectively with bullying” were different in our school and for all schools in the Local Authority because a number of parents/carers responded that they “Don’t Know”.  This might suggest that parents have not had any experience of bullying and that bullying is not prevalent. We have included a percentage figure in brackets where we have removed “Don’t Know” from the figures. However, in response to this, it may be useful to know that the school has an anti-bullying policy which you can download from the Parentzone of the school website. The number of incidents of bullying are typically very low because pupils are overwhelmingly considerate towards one another. Incidents are always logged as are actions taken to ensure that patterns of bullying reduce. We conduct regular pupil discussions where we talk about welfare and bullying and pupils learn about bullying including cyber bullying and prejudice during assemblies, PHSE and family group sessions.

A summary of the questionnaire results is also available to view in the “Your Say” section of the website. We plan to included a summary of the written submissions we received and, where appropriate, a response from the school when Governors have reviewed these submissions at their next meeting.
