"All of the staff work incredibly hard to deliver a well-rounded education to our pupils, and it is excellent that this has been recognised in our latest survey."
A Coventry academy is celebrating its achievements after receiving exceptional feedback from parents as it marks its fifth anniversary.
Romero Catholic Academy, made up of seven primary schools and one secondary school based in the city, has announced the results of its successful 2020 parent and carer survey.
Hundreds of people with children across the Academy, which includes Corpus Christi, Good Shepherd, Sacred Heart, St Gregory’s, St John Fisher, St Patrick’s, and SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Schools and Cardinal Wiseman School, took part in the survey.
It attracted a host of positive responses, with total of 94.38 per cent stating that they would recommend their school to others – a figure which has increased year-on-year since the survey began in 2018.
A total of 96.8 per cent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that their child is happy at their school and 95.32 per cent said that their child is encouraged to work hard and do their best.
A similarly high percentage reported that their child feels safe at their school and that their child is well looked after.
When asked what they like about their child’s school, parents and carers praised everything from the staff members and the high standard of education being delivered to their values and how supportive and nurturing they are, with one parent stating: “The school is like family. Every teacher and member of staff know the children really well and care for them. I could not pick a better school for my children.”
Romero Director of Operations Patrick Taggart has welcomed the results and said that they are testament to the dedication of staff across the Academy and it also reflects a number of improvements that have been made during the last five years.
He said: “It is fantastic to receive such positive feedback from our parents and carers right across the Academy as we celebrate our fifth anniversary.
“All of the staff work incredibly hard to deliver a well-rounded education to our pupils, and it is excellent that this has been recognised in our latest survey.
“As an Academy we have made a number of improvements to our schools, strengthening the way we communicate with our families and making a huge level of investment in technology to ensure our teachers have access to some of the very best facilities to benefit the children.
“We continue to focus on recruitment, striving to ensure we welcome the highest quality staff members, and also work hard to share best practice across our eight schools.
“Our mission is to be a beacon of excellence for Catholic education, and we will now be analysing the full responses in detail as we continue to deliver improvements, putting the children at the centre of all that we do.”
