Parent Feedback

Here at Miles Franklin School, we are proud of the work we do and our professional relationships with members of our school community. Below are a range of comments from both parents and students which were collected from our School Satisfaction Survey 2015.

Some comments from our Parent Satisfaction Survey 2015

* We transferred to this school at the beginning of this year and have had no regrets about our choice.  My child has settled in well to his class and the school as a whole and we are very happy with his progress both within the learning environment and the social aspects.

* The school is progressive and the IB program is contributing strongly to the unity and positive direction of the school. Congrats for the Naplan results. Homework is good, particularly Mathletics and readers.

* I really appreciated it when the newsletter started including the "homework helper" for parents. That has made a significant difference to the focus and content of discussions with my child.

* The principal and teaching staff at Miles Franklin fully encompass the concept of Inclusion and thanks to their commitment my son who has ASD has progressed in all aspects of education and socialization. Thanks to the support of the staff he will be a valuable member of our community due to the great foundation of education, support and compassion at Miles.

* On the basis of comparison that our children have attended a different School prior to MFPS, we admire the community spirit here and attitude of kindness that seems to flow across all areas of School. As parents we feel appreciated for any small contribution we are able to make, this gratitude creates an investment of ownership, which is integral to building a contributing parental community.

* We have only been part of the school for a short time but my child has been made to feel welcome and safe already. He speaks very fondly of his teachers and enjoys coming to school.
