Parents' Views of WLSJ
Prospective parents should gather as much information about their child’s future school as possible. Apart from visiting school beforehand it is useful to know the opinions of other parents.
At St. James, we try to keep in touch with parents as closely as possible and fine-tune our practices where necessary. As a result, parental comments are predominantly positive. A selection are shown below:
“My child loves Ethos group!”
“My child enjoys Forestry and that the school takes a real importance in children’s fitness.”
“My child likes breakfast club.”
“After school sports’ clubs are favourites. My child loves taking part and is desperate to get to the age of being able to do netball club.”
“The after school clubs and sports are second to none.”
“Lessons are really engaging and interesting.”

At the time of a school inspection plus any time of year, parents can give their views to Ofsted using the Parent View questionnaire at Parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.
Your responses will help Ofsted to form an accurate picture of our school and give it a fair assessment.
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. Ofsted will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping the school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child’s school.
