We ask parents attending our Parents’ Consultation Evenings to complete a questionnaire so that we can ensure we are meeting your high expectations.
We had a pleasing number of responses to last term’s Parental Questionnaires by parents of girls in each of the Years 9, 10, 11, and 13.
We were pleased that a very high percentage (100%) of respondents reported that they believed KGGS to be a good school and that their daughters are happy to attend it and that they are kept well informed about their daughter’s progress.
In addition 99.75% either ‘Agreed’ or ‘Strongly Agreed’ that the standard of teaching is good and only five in 395 responses felt the school did not encourage their daughter to become mature and independent.
Of the Y11 parents who completed the questionnaire in 2016-2017 (11%) were concerned that we had not provided sufficient information to their daughters about Year 11 choices and post – 18 options. Therefore this academic year we deliberately scheduled the Y11 Consultation Evening to October in order for students and parents to discuss progress and possible GCSE performance enabling them to be better informed regarding the suitability of possible subject choices for A Level. The 2017-2018 Parent questionnaires were much more positive with 97% of Parents agreeing that the school meets this criterion. Likewise we moved the Y9 Consultation Evening to before Christmas to allow plenty of time for the students to consider their Y9 Options in January.
