At Epworth Primary Academy we are keen to hear the views and opinions of stakeholders involved within the Academy community. We regularly invite parents to feedback to us during formal information giving evenings. The Principal is available most days on the gate before and after school to speak briefly to parents. If you require a longer, more private conversation, an appointment can be made through the Academy reception.
Parents can also complete an Ofsted survey, Parent View, online here.
Pupils are involved in the life of the academy and are encouraged to take responsibility through the Academy Council. Two children are elected from each class from Year 2 upwards to be class representatives on the Academy Council for a year.
The Academy Council also provides us with pupil feedback about what we are doing well and where we could improve, from a pupil’s perspective. Pupil voice activities are carried out periodically to allow all pupils to have their say. Some of their recent comments are:
