Analysis of our results:


We were delighted to see such a positive response to the questions posed. We launched the same questionnaire last year and are really pleased to see that percentages of parents who agree or strongly agree have risen for every question from 2022 to 2023. 


We are particularly pleased that over 90% of parents now agree:

  • My child is making good progress in learning in RE
  • My child is developing a good knowledge and understanding of world faiths through RE


Our next steps will be to promote:

  • Good relationships between the school and 'other' religious groups in the area 
  • The school providing a wide range of cultural activities for children to take part in


Many thanks to all those parents who took time to provide such valuable feedback.
