Parent Voice

Resilience, mindfulness and self-awareness are key components of a positive school climate – a school environment that, as well as being safe and clean with high quality teaching practices, supportive relationships, communication, wellbeing and respect. Science is now supporting what perhaps many of us know intuitively (and teachers’ know through experience): there is a lot more to schooling than academics. A good school can teach your children to read and write, but a positive school will help them to flourish.




Gorse Ride Schools conducted a Parent Voice Survey in January 2022. Survey responses were completed online.   Please click here to read the full report.
