The Academy's Ofsted reports can be found at http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/inspection-reports/find-inspection-report/provider/ELS/135311
Parent View is the Ofsted online questionnaire survey tool that enables parents/carers or in fact anyone with an email address to comment on a school against a set list of questions. Therefore it can be completed at any time during an academic year by people who do not have a child at the Academy as well as those who do. However it is not possible for the responses to be validated as completed by parents/carers of students at the Academy. The Academy therefore also uses hard copies of the same survey questions during Parents' Consultation Evenings throughout the year for each year group in order to verify that the survey responses are completed by a parent/carer with a child/children in a particular year group at the Academy and discuss anything raised with parents/carers directly and also pass feedback to staff and Governors. These verified survey results are published in the termly Academy Newsletters both as hard copies sent to all parents/carers and also on the Academy's website and all copies of survey responses are archived at the Academy.
