Parent/Carer Parent Partnership Survey

In March 2021 we sent an online survey to all parents and carers about our parent partnership provision. Here are the results.

87% of parents/carers surveyed said that the academy is good at communicating with them. We regularly communicate via the website, letters, texts & SchoolComms. SchoolComms is our preferred means of communication and 92% of parents are active on here, if you aren’t you can sign up via the following link: Schoolcomms | The Parent App for Outstanding Schools

70% of parents/carers surveyed said that the academy supports their child by providing information and resources. Pupils have access to Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, Hegarty maths, GCSEPod and LanguageNut. Pupils approaching examinations are provided with revision guides and materials to help them prepare. During periods of forced closure we provided resource packs and always provide cooking ingredients to those in receipt of free school meals.

Please contact your child’s Learning Manager should you think there is anything we can do to improve your child’s experience at De Warenne Academy.

58% of parents/carers surveyed have read the curriculum section of our website. The curriculum area of the website is regularly updated and informs parents/carers what their child will study whilst at the academy. Newsletters about curriculum changes and the options process are sent to parents/carers when appropriate.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the curriculum offer at De Warenne Academy.

Pupils are rewarded for effort with above and beyond stickers in their planners. Excellent work is rewarded with a certificate and sweets on Proud Thursdays. We also publicise achievement regularly on Twitter @DeltaDeWarenne

Please remember that ‘real time’ communication is also available via the SchoolComms app.
