Parent View - Ofsted Parent Survey

At BACA we aim to run annual anonymous surveys for all parents and carers, assisted by our Parent Forum.  Other services available to parents and carers is Parent View, run by Ofsted.

Parent View enables the parent or carer to tell Ofsted what they think about their child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.  There does not need to be an inspection for parents to access the service and this survey is available to complete at any time.  Ofsted will then use this information to inform their decision as to which schools to inspect next.

We would encourage you to complete the Ofsted Parent View independent survey; click ‘Give your views’ to register and complete the survey to help improve our Academy.
