Please follow the link to complete our 2017 Parent Survey!
In 15/16 Springwell engaged with 100% of the parents and carers through meetings such as annual reviews, Parents' evening, LAC reviews, through support from our family, welfare and behaviour support teams and also through informal activities such as our Family Learning afternoons, sports day, our art show and coffee mornings.
Attendance at termly parents evening averaged at 67% of parents and carers. Attendance at annual reviews was 85%.
In Autumn 2016 parents were invited to complete the Annual Parents' Survey. Responses from the Survey have been included in the new School Strategic Plan.
