Ofsted Inspection – Parent View

22 May 2019

Dear parent or carer
Inspection of North Elmham Voluntary Controlled Primary School by Ofsted
We have just told your child’s school that we will inspect it on 23 May 2019. The lead inspector will be Ali Pepper. We are writing to you because we would like to know what you think about the school. Please take a few minutes to read the leaflet which came with this letter. It explains why we inspect schools, and what happens during an
inspection.
Your views about the school are important to us.
If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, at: www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk . Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, how the school deals with bullying and poor behaviour. It also provides a free-text box for you to make additional comments, if you wish. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child’s school. Written comments can also be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team. You can download the Parents Guide to School Inspections for more information.
To register your views, you will need to provide your email address, which will be held securely. It will not be used for any purpose other than providing access to the online survey. Neither schools nor Ofsted will have access to any email addresses.
Please complete the online survey by 11am on 23 May 2019 as this will give the inspection team more time to consider your views. However, we will consider all online responses that are completed during the inspection, although the free-text box facility will not be available after noon on 24 May 2019.
Speaking to an inspector
If you are unable to complete the online survey, it may be possible to speak to an inspector during the inspection, for instance at the start of the school day, or to pass on messages to the inspectors if you are unable to speak to them in person. Inspection administrators will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. If concerns are raised about child protection, we may have to pass the information we receive to social services or the police. You can contact the administrators on 03000131278. Inspectors will be pleased to receive your comments, but cannot deal with complaints about individual pupils or settle disputes between you and the school.
Privacy notice
During the inspection of your child’s school, the inspectors will collect information about children at the school by looking at school records, reviewing responses to the pupil survey where appropriate, and observing the everyday life of the school. No names will be recorded but some of the information may make it possible to identify a particular child. Ofsted uses this information to prepare its report and for the purposes set out in its privacy policy.
Ofsted will not publish any information that identifies a child in the report.
More information is available in Ofsted privacy notice: www.gov.uk/government/publications/ofsted-privacy-notices/schools-ofsted-privacy-notice#parent-school.
