Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school
Parents and carers can give their views of our academy at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.  When our academy is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire.  Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details. Please register with an email address and a password by clicking on the Parent View icon below. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc. Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our academy, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.  If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.

You Said We Did 
The aim at Greensward Academy is to act upon feedback from our customers and improve matters where possible.  These are some of the things the academy did last year following feedback from parents, students and the wider community.  If you have a suggestion on how we can improve matters for you, then please contact Mrs S Wheeler, Principal's EA (swheeler@greenswardacademy.org).
