Parent and Carer Survey

At the heart of every SEMH school's mission lies a commitment to nurturing the holistic development of every student, and this cannot be achieved in isolation.

In recognition of this, we carry out a survey to highlight the profound importance of parents and caregivers as essential partners in the educational journey of our students. Your insights, experiences, and perspectives helps Westlands to create supportive environments that enable every child to thrive. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter future for our SEMH students and the communities they are a part of.

Our latest survey in January of 2024 gave the Academy a 97.1% approval rating (up from March 2023 - 96.4%) with key areas scoring 100%:

  • "My child feels safe when at school." 
  • "My child has made good progress since attending this school."
  • "My child is well looked after by this school."
  • "My child is taught well at this school."
  • "This school encourages its pupils to display positive behaviour when in school."
  • "This school is well led and managed."

However, we are aware that there are areas in which we can focus to improve those points and bring them up to 100%. The survey has been a great tool in being able to highlight how we can support the educational journeys better.

A follow-up survey will be issued later on - please take part. It is only by working together that we can improve the lives of all of the students here at Westlands.
