At each Parents' Evening, we ask our parents and carers to complete a short survey about their experience of Walthamstow School for Girls.
You can see the latest results below, together with an Executive Summary from our Headteacher for feedback received at Parents' Evenings during the previous academic year.
To communicate your questions or comments to us about our school, please contact us via email@example.com or call 020 8509 9446
A Message from the Children's Commissioner
A message from Rachel de Souza, Children's Commissioner for England
Before Easter, we received a letter from the new Children’s Commissioner for England, Rachel de Souza, asking for our help.
Her role is to speak up for children and young people across England. As the government starts to plan how to rebuild after the pandemic, she wants children to be at heart of it. She needs our help to gather children’s views and priorities for the future, so that the government takes them into account.
She has launched the Childhood Commission, which she describes as "a once-in-a-generation review of the future of childhood". This review will identify the barriers preventing children from reaching their full potential, put forward solutions and set ambitious goals for the country to achieve.
The first stage of this work is gathering the views, opinions and experiences of all children. She plans to carry out the largest ever consultation with children in
England, called The Big Ask, to find out what children’s concerns and aspirations about the future are. Her ambition is to reach every child – the more she hears from, the stronger this work will be.
The Big Ask was launched on Monday 19 April in the form of a short online questionnaire.
We would be very grateful if you could encourage your child to fill it in, there is also an adult survey.
If our school submits enough responses, we will receive a bespoke report summarising what our students have said about their aspirations, concerns and challenges for the future. This could be really useful for us to help our planning and provision going forwards.
