Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of our school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting our school.
It would be great if you could complete the survey – inspection teams rarely receive more than a handful of replies to Parent View, and it would be useful to Ofsted and to us if a significant number of our parents completed the survey.

A FORMER chef and hospitality manager who served lunch to Princess Diana is now teaching students fine dining and other cookery skills for life at Priory Community School.
Simon Gray is teaching students the art of preparing and serving gourmet food and also plans food tasting sessions, cookery competitions and a host of other courses at the Academy Trust as part of his new role as head of the design team.
After training at the same catering college as Jamie Oliver, he ended up serving lunch to Lady Diana. He also ran public catering and hospitality at Wimbledon Tennis, the PGA golf tournament at Wentworth, the Windsor Horse Show and a variety of other top flight events.
PEDAL-POWERED smoothies are on the menu after Priory Community School, an Academy Trust, became the first school in North Somerset to benefit from initiatives to promote healthy and sustainable travel.
The Active Travel to School project was launched with students trying out a unique pedal-powered smoothie maker bike which showed how to convert energy through pedal power into a healthy breakfast option.
Priory Community School has unveiled new expansion plans which it hopes will allow it to accommodate a further 300 pupils.
PCSA has increased its admission numbers by 16 students this year and aims to keep that number rising to satisfy a growing demand for places.
The school’s architects have now unveiled sketches and layouts for a new block to increase its numbers by 300.
The academy’s scheme will see a new futuristic science block with 10 classrooms built in the shape of a block of DNA.
Principal Neville Coles said: “We are very proud of our students and want to see every single one of them get the best platform for their future success, so we also want the very best buildings and facilities we can have.
