Parent Survey July 2019

Parent Survey July 2019 4

We consult parents on a range of important issues. Consultation can happen informally, on the playground, or formally through a written survey. In addition - in 2019/20 -  we will have a 'suggestion box' for parents in our main entrance. The views of parents and carers are hugely important in helping us offer the best possible service, and in helping to shape the future direction of the school and providing the very best opportunities for the children at Seaburn Dene. In the past, we have used written surveys to consult many different matters and we will continue to do so.

Each document is in PDF format, and can be downloaded by clicking on the name of the survey.

Some of the further comments:


  • My son enjoys many aspects of school life and feels happy.

  • The ratio of children to teachers is fantastic and allows more focus. I've seen massive progress in our children.

  • I'm so pleased that we put our child in Seaburn Dene. She is so happy here and looks forward to each day. I always feel that she is well looked after.

  • A very caring school. My child is happy here and is doing well. We appreciate how hard all the staff work.

  • We are very happy and think the school is very well lead and impressed with all the staff.

  • I have been totally satisfied during my children's education: over five years. 

  • Our eldest child had such a positive experience of primary school. We hope our youngest daughter is as happy at Seaburn Dene as her sister was - she certainly seems to be be. She loves the school, learning and her friends. Thank you.

On the evening of 12th February 2015 we held a mother and daughters evening with a focus on maths, challenges and family fun. Here is feedback from one of our parents.


To Miss Purdy

I just want to thank you and ALL the staff at Seaburn Dene for the most fantastic and enjoyable night for mothers and daughters. My two girls have said they cant wait for the next night as they enjoyed so much. I think if there were more families there, it may have taken longer for each family to be involved in the activities, therefore having only 28 families was the perfect amount for the night. Please dont hold back on future events like this, as you and all the staff joined in and made a great night for everyone! 

Thanks again

Action Maths-Foundation Stage Unit

Please pass on my appreciation to the staff in the Foundation Stage for their effort in planning and delivering a great Action Maths session.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit this morning to share in my son’s play and learning. He was very enthusiastic about all the maths activities on offer and was proud to show me around "his" nursery.

May I also take this opportunity to thank Mrs Wilson and the team for helping to settle my child into your school. His confidence has grown a lot in the past couple of weeks and as a parent it's reassuring to hear him tell me things such as "Mrs Wilson's got a lovely voice" "Mrs Brown wears lovely jumpers" and "Mrs Fryatt is lovely.” Thank you.
