At Redmoor we value the thoughts and feedback of parents. We actively encourage parents and carers to share their experiences of the school in terms of safety, lessons, homework, behaviour, academic progress and communications, including how well new children settle in and how successfully older pupils are prepared for further education, training and the world of work.

Comments are collected at every parents’ evening through questionnaires. Respondents can choose to remain anonymous or supply their name if they would like a response. The feedback is collated and summarised and all concerns receive a personal response where names are supplied.

The vast majority of our parents are delighted with the school and many positive comments are received and passed on to teachers and support staff. Where any trends are identified, we take active steps to address the situation and communicate this in a general manner through ParentMail or the school newsletter. 

Below are a selection of comments from our Year 7 ‘Settling in’ Tutor Evening in October 2019:

I am really pleased with how my daughters are settling in. They are happy to come to school and seem to have made lots of new friends.

Very pleased with the transition to Redmoor. Communication and flow of information is excellent.

Really happy with the way my daughter has settled in. Seems to have matured with the independence offered.

My son has settled in exceptionally well. He enjoys school now, is challenged and only has good things to report.

Of the questionnaires collected at our most recent parents’ evening in November 2019:

  • 98% of parents stated that their child feels happy and safe at Redmoor
  • 98% said their child  is making good progress.
  • 100% said the school has high expectations of the students.
  • 100% said they would recommend the school to others.

We have received many positive comments from parents so far in 2019-20:

Very happy. The school has been brilliant for both my children through very hard times.

My son is happy and responding so well to all the help that is given in Year 11. He knows what he wants for his future and knows where his strengths and weaknesses lie. He is attending after school clubs and receiving the help he needs. Thank you. I can’t recommend this school highly enough.

We remain grateful to the staff at Redmoor for their continued efforts to help our children to succeed. 

I would most definitely recommend this school to other parents.

Safe, family environment.

Fantastic opportunities. Great teaching staff.

Redmoor exudes an all round positive attitude to learning and there’s great pastoral staff.

Great all round coverage of subjects.

Both my children attend this school and both seem to have thrived here so far. Really supportive school. My children have come on in leaps and bounds.

Of course, in addition to questionnaires, we invite any parents or carers to contact us

with positive experiences or concerns at any time.
