Feedback from parents/carers
Cheam High School believes in working closely with parents and carers to support their child's progress. We are aware of how vital parental support for learning is to student motivation and achievement.
We also collect formal feedback at various meetings over each academic year to check that parents/carers are satisfied with the work of the school. Included in these questions are the 12 questions that Ofsted asks parents/carers to answer during any Ofsted Inspection.
Outcomes from these 12 questions are shown below. We have grouped these under four headings for ease of reading:
