Y4 Parent       “My daughter loves school. She is very content in her class.

FS1 Parent    “My child settled well in Nursery because staff took the time to work with him and kept me informed.

Y6 Parent     “My son loves Whetley. He has been here since FS1 and I feel teachers have pushed him to work hard.

At Whetley we want to make sure we are responding to the views of our parents. After the questionnaire, a number of parents were contacted by the Head of Academy to discuss individual comments. School will use feedback in order to improve.
