Have a say 2019

We would like to gather your views on the current provision in school and each year we have our ‘Have a Say’ week in the summer term to collect the views of parents/carers, school staff and pupils. Please could you therefore complete the ‘Have a Say’ questionnaire using one of the following:

  1. Online: Visit our website go to the Parents Page and click the Useful Links then simply complete the Greenacre Have a Say 2019
  2. By requesting a paper copy of the questionnaire from Debbie Lunn on reception.

After your views have been collected by Monday 8th July we will provide a summary of the findings. The feedback from the questionnaires will be used to steer our long term action plan. Our aim is to work with parents and carers to improve the school offer and encourage parental engagement.

‘Have a Say’ will ensure we are meeting the needs of all our students and their families, and I would like to thank you for taking part in this valuable process. If you have any further queries in relation to this please don’t hesitate to get in touch
