We are pleased to see that a representative from a third of all families in the school responded, and this has given us great insight into how satisfied you are with Stanhope. 92% of you, the school whānau, either ‘Strongly Agree’ or ‘Agree’ that you would recommend the school to friends and family. There are 96% who agree that their child's classroom teacher is welcoming and available. The Board of Trustees are also pleased that 75% of whānau agree that the board are governing the school effectively - a good outcome for a new board.
You gave us lots of open feedback that we have enjoyed reading. There is a strong request for more activities and community events. You are pleased with the changes to our grounds; however you would like continued investment in them, and more artwork around the school. Also, you would like additional resources for our learners, including greater access to digital devices. Together with student and teacher voice, we are looking to how this can be incorporated into future strategic planning.
All of the results were very encouraging; and as different initiatives get rolled out next year, we're sure that these results will improve.
