Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about Feniscowles Primary School.
As Parents and Carers, you can give Ofsted your views of our school at any time of the year using an online questionnaire called Parent View. Your views are really important in helping inspectors form a judgement about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
Please register using the link below. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions on a variety of aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching and level of homework.
Our Most-Recent Parent Survey Feedback
Your views are important to us. Throughout the year, we will send out surveys to gather your thoughts and opinions and these will be factored into decision making processes within school.
In the two tables below, you can find the responses to our most recent parent survey. You can also see actions which school are taking to address these. As always, please do speak to us as soon as possible regarding any concerns as and when they arise! We have a list of who is best placed to help you resolve any concerns on our "About Us" tab titled Contact Details.
We'd like to thank all of our families who completed the survey. The results were very positive in all areas. The table does not include responses to all of the questions asked; we have included only responses where action was needed and subsequently taken.

There were many
My daughter has settled in so well to the reception Robins class and she loves her teachers. She has come on so much in such a short time.
As a whole, I feel every single person (whether they have taught my child, listened to my child read or dealt with my query in the office) have been superb.
My child is extremely happy in school. It is welcoming and the school itself is clean, tidy and an impressive learning environment. School generally should be proud of how things have moved forward over past year.
I have nothing but good things to say about Feniscowles Primary School. Every single member of staff is friendly, helpful and approachable. I always feel well informed and supported and my son is very happy here. I would also like to say how fantastic the older students helping out at Parents' Evening were, super welcoming, friendly and efficient!
All staff are always approachable, understanding and very helpful. Any issues are dealt with promptly; even with their very busy schedule. Thank you and keep up the great work!
A fantastic school, we are so glad our son attends this school. He is happy here and I feel that as parents we have seen him develop lots already in a matter of weeks. Thank you all staff at Feniscowles.
Mr Andrew has been amazing, and made much needed changes. I would choose Feniscowles every time. An amazing school with committed staff. My child is so happy and I just hope high school can match her experience of primary.
Feniscowles has been a great school for our daughter - a safe, comfortable and encouraging place to be.

School have purchased extra signage and traffic cones to support with this matter from school funds.

We frequently remind our families to be courteous when parking via our school bulletin and via our school Facebook Page.
