Glenalmond Welcomes Positive Parent Feedback

Our survey of parents requesting feedback on the first few weeks of our Online Teaching programme, Coll@Home, has generated some very positive responses.

The survey aimed to identify areas where the delivery of our online programme is strong and where it might be honed, along with the wider thoughts and suggestions of our pupils' parents from around the world.

Importantly, it also sought feedback from parents about the physical and mental wellbeing of children as they moved to remote learning. 

We are delighted to report the feedback received has been overwhelmingly positive about pupil wellbeing and the delivery of our online provision. Our thanks to parents for completing the survey and for all the support and encouragement they are giving to pupils and to staff.

As we continue to seek ways to constantly improve our online programme, we are very grateful for the constructive suggestions put forward.

A sample of some of the very encouraging feedback from parents is below:
