Parents will be aware that we constantly review and improve facilities where we can and within positive timeframes. Our commitment to facility and teacher quality remain undimmed. Your children deserve the best that we can provide for them. We have been viewed in parents’ responses to have improved in 61% of the areas covered.
We are pleased with the progress we are making and the comparisons against the region and with the global family of Nord Anglia Schools, shows the value of the work so far:
Regional: In 55% of questions we exceeded the regional average, with 13% in line. Where we were lower, the vast majority of responses were by a single or 2% points.
Global: It is also very pleasing that in 68% of areas covered by the survey, we were considered to have outperformed against global averages, with 16% equal in percentage satisfaction with all other NAE schools.
Where we were behind: These areas have been identified from the survey responses and will become our focal points for development in the coming year. In 25% of these areas where we are behind regional and global averages, an improvement has already been observed by respondents, but we remain committed to further improvements
Last year, we learnt about some of the key areas where you would like to see improvements. We made improvements in Library, Research and Classroom spaces. We focussed attention on indoor sports facilities as well as Dance, Drama, Music facilities. We invested widely in Continuous Professional Learning opportunities for all teaching staff.
