At parents’ evening every Autumn Term we asked our parents a number of questions.

We always welcome feedback from children and parents as this way we can work together for better outcomes for everyone.

The results below show the last few years worth of survey outcomes (some gaps due to Covid) and show a very positive picture for the school. Thank you for working with us so well. For  results submitted directly via the OFSTED parent view website, please visit: parent view website

A selection of comments included in response to the question: What does Colebourne do well?

The staff are amazing. The dedication shown by all members of staff is incredible. I couldn’t be happier with the overall experience my family are fortunate enough to have as a result of a quality education delivered by all at Colebourne.
Colebourne is a very good school. Despite the challenges it faces financially due to the government cutbacks I feel that the school informs parents and carers to where they will make changes in school to enhance the children’s learning. Mr Guest has regular updates about what is going on and also we have meetings too. We have an app which is great for parents to use and to know what their child will be learning. Also if you want to talk to the teachers you can message them.
Colebourne is best in every way.
Colebourne staff go above and beyond for parents and pupils.
Communication with Parents is frequent and good. HT takes on board the view of the parents.
Communication, engagement, respectful, understanding of needs
Education, Activities, Parents meetings and term planning. Communication and school management is great.
Engaging well with parents lots of outdoor activities and trips
Fantastic Nursery teachers who have a very caring approach to the children. I am  pleased with the way the teaching staff at Colebourne helped the children settle in well to the school. My child is happy to go to school each day and really likes all the teachers. A wonderful learning environment has been created at the nursery and it has been lovely to see my child’s development since his started at nursery. I am glad I choose this nursery.
Great safe environment,  encouraging ethos. Encourage parents participation.
High standards of teaching and learning. Great staff, always helpful and friendly. Great communication with parents
I like the celebration assemblies and star of the week certificates so children can know that their hard work have been appreciated.
I really like the Apps they used like class dojo and arbour which is easily connect the parents what’s going on  in school. Teachers and staff are very friendly, nice & kind.
