Parent View is a government website that asks the opinions of parents and carers on twelve aspects of their child’s schooling and five aspects of their child’s welfare. These range from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. It is an opportunity to give feedback in a confidential way to the College and can also be used in an Ofsted inspection. The government will use the information provided when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.

All feedback allows Sir Jonathan North to improve its practices and teaching to benefit all students.

To give your views visit ParentView and register. Search for Sir Jonathan North College LE2 6FU and select the correct establishment.

The questionnaire asks for a response ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree and will not take more than a few minutes to complete.
