Parents & Carers Survey

Parents and Carers Annual Questionnaire Results 2021-22

Thank you for your feedback as part of our annual self review. The majority of the questions were based on the current OFSTED Parent and Carer questionnaire.


We had a very high response to the survey (297 replies) and we are pleased to share the results with you via the link below. 


In addition to the results generated by the survey, we will also be feeding back on additional points raised in the final section of the questionnaire. 


You views are very important to us as part of our self-review process and to inform  and support our planning of the children's holistic learning journey at Oakham Primary.


Parents and Carers Annual Questionnaire Results 2021-22 PDF

As part of the feedback process, we asked parents and carers to offer any further comments or questions about our school and the provision we currently offer. 


How can I find out what subjects and topics my child will be learning about?

Curriculum Overviews for the Spring term have been uploaded to the              'Learning>Curriculum' section of our website to give families more information on what children will be learning about during this term. 


Will there be any Extra-Curricular clubs and activities  this year?

We have been delayed somewhat by the ongoing C-19 disruption and requirements to minimise unnecessary mixing of year group bubbles. However, as this situation is improving, we are currently working on a plan to provide children with a range of clubs during this remainder of the academic year. Further details will be shared later this half-term. 


How does Oakham Primary support my child's 'Wider Development'?

As well as following the statutory national curriculum subjects, we aspire to provide all of our children with the broadest curriculum and learning journey as possible. This is designed to provide frequent opportunities to cover areas such as:


  • The Development of self-understanding and empathy.
  • Making and maintaining healthy, productive relationships
  •  Relationships Education
  •  Understanding Healthy Lifestyles
  •  Keeping safe on roads and around water
  •  How to stay safe on the internet
  • The promotion of good mental health
  • Following the 'Clever Never Goes' and NSPCC 'PANTS' approaches
  • Developing in to a great 'Oakham Learner'


Over their time at Oakham, children have opportunities to visit three Sandwell Residential Centres (Edgmond Hall -Y2, Frank Chapman -Y4 & Plas Gwynant -Y6) and participate in annual day trips to support learning. We regularly provide opportunities to engage with guest speakers, external organisations and author visits to our school. 


We run a School Council for KS2 children and Y6 children are trained as 'Young Leaders' to support children across school with fun activities during lunchtime as part of our 'Active Playgrounds' project. 


Our trained and supervised KS2 'Well-Being Champions' provide support to peers, promote emotional wellbeing and a positive mental health attitude around school and on our playgrounds.


Further information on our approach to 'Personal Development' will be available, later this half-term,in the 'Learning' section of our website.

Thank you for your support and feedback; the additional comments have been very useful in reviewing last term's approach and will inform our future planning.
