As a forward thinking school we take regular surveys to find out what our parents, children and staff think of their experience at Huttoft Primary School. The Governing Body along with the Headteacher analyses this data very carefully to inform future school developments.
Analysis from our 2015/16 Parent View survey showed our parents to be 100% satisfied with our school. Click here to find out more.

In addition we are actioning Parental requests for:
- More iPads in the classrooms
In 2013 we surveyed all parents about "e-safety" at home and whilst only 26% of our parents responded, it did identify that there are some areas we could support parents with through our work in school.
- including reminders about CEOP in our half termly e-safety lessons to all KS2 children (notices about CEOP are always on display in school)
- providing more opportunities for discussions about what "safe internet use" means
- including an item about e-safety in at least one newsletter every term
Thank you to all those parents who took part, your responses and comments are valued and these three actions are now embedded in our work. Additionally further information and advice for parents concerning childrens online usage has been circulated in 2015.
