Pupils rate Priory higher than ever
Following our recent survey of pupils’ attitudes to the school, I am pleased to note that pupils rate the ways they are being taught, how they are being treated and the ways in which they are learning. They think staff enjoy teaching them much more, that the lessons are more interesting and that the work is more stimulating. They think staff are trying harder to get the best out of them and they are doing more homework. They think their school work is more important.
Other important changes which come through the survey include:
- Pupils feel they are listened to more
- Homework is regularly marked
- More of them feel they are working harder
- Staff are focusing more on discussing progress with pupils
- They think this is a better school
- They are more motivated to come to school
- They respect staff more
- They are treated more fairly
- A higher proportion than nationally feel the school rules are fair and reasonable (new question)
- A wider range of teaching methods are being used
- They are praised more
- The lowest ever proportion of pupils saying that lessons are frequently or often disrupted
- Things are explained more clearly
- They feel they are learning more
- A higher proportion than ever before say they get well with most of their teachers
I am thrilled that pupils have rated the school more highly and that they have noticed a real impact through the changes we have worked hard to put in place. Of course, this is over only two terms, so I look forward to even more impressive ratings next year with exam results to follow!
Many parents and staff filled in a similar questionnaire. I will be sharing the results of these next week.
