Clanfield Church of England Primary School

Parent Voice

At Clanfield CE Primary School your views as parents/carers are paramount in our strive for achieving excellence in all areas of school life. Every year a questionnaire is sent to all parents and carers of children at Clanfield CE Primary School to enable them to share their ideas of what we can do better. 
The school leaders and governing body use the results of this annual survey to help continue to improve school performance. A summary of the results of each annual survey is provided in the schools newsletters and on the school website.
