Family Feedback Overview

Over the past three months, we have been liaising with families and with former pupils and students to get a sense of what we do well at St Dominic’s school, as well as areas where we could do even better. We have conducted a detailed survey of our current families regarding a broad range of issues that affect the education and wellbeing of pupils who are currently on roll, and our Careers lead has spoken to the majority of pupils in Year 11 or Year 13 who left St Dominic’s at the end of the 16/17, 17/18, or 18/19 academic years to get a sense of how they are doing now, and how well prepared for the next steps in their journey they felt they were.

The results are very positive and we would encourage you to take the time to read the summary. Our updated curriculum aims to ensure that pupils and students achieve ambitious goals and live life to the full through a purposeful curriculum that is rooted in our collective knowledge and understanding. Specifically, ensuring that pupils and students are able to: live with meaningful independence; secure paid employment in a career that is of interest and relevance to them; and enjoy social inclusion throughout the whole of their lives.

Our former pupils and students have reported that they are able to travel with greater independence and some have secured employment in the rail industry, in education, as well as in other sectors, and all of the ‘leavers’ that we spoke to continue to be in some form of education, training or employment which is terrific news. There are areas which have been highlighted as needing further development, and we will be working with pupils, families, staff and other stakeholders over the coming months to address these.
