What our Parents Say

The Short Stay School often meets parents and carers for the first time soon after a traumatic event has led to their child being permanently excluded from a previous school. Our young people have often had very turbulent school histories and their families have sometimes struggled to maintain good relationships with previous education providers. Therefore we are always really pleased with the amount of positive feedback we get from the parents/carers of our young people and we do an annual parental survey to try and capture this.

We proactively seek out the views of our current parents/carers to try and learn about the impact of our provision on the home lives of our students, and to seek to improve the service we offer.
