Parental Survey Results - Spring 2017
This report details the findings of the second Kirkland Rowell Parent Survey for Banks Lane Infant School.
The report measures the levels of satisfaction among the pupils’ parents for a range of criteria, which have been previously identified as being important to the parents of school pupils. The report measures the relative importance of the criteria surveyed, as well as providing results tables that identify the perceived strengths and weaknesses of the school in the year to March 2017. The report also measures performance with regard to overall satisfaction and improvement.
