St John's RC High School Parent/Carer Questionnaire

Your views about the school

Questions for parents/carers

We will shortly be visiting your child’s school to review how well pupils are learning and achieving and how well the school supports young people to do their best.

We would like you to give us your views about the school by answering some questions. Your views are important to us, because they will form part of the evidence we collect in the review. We will give the school a summary of the results of all questionnaire responses. We will not give your name in any information we share with others. We will be careful in how we present any information in tables, to keep your answers confidential. We may use the information for statistical purposes.


The questions will take around 15 minutes to answer.


Please read each statement and choose the answer that best describes your experience of the school as a whole.


If you have more than one child at the school, please answer in relation to your eldest child only.


Thank you for giving us your views.

Investing in Vocabulary

Did you know that children with wide vocabularies make excellent progress at school and in further education? We have invested in an innovative literacy improvement tool called Bedrock Vocabulary. The aims of the programme are:

1. To ensure students read aspirational fiction and non-fiction texts regularly.

2. To equip students with the deep vocabulary knowledge required for the increasingly demanding curriculum.

3. To build students’ confidence, cultural frame of reference and efficacy for life beyond the school gates.

George R Donald Schools Enterprise Challenge


The George Donald Schools Challenge creates a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to work with our young people, helping to ignite their passion for business and enterprise.

This year’s event took place on 31 October at Michelin Athletic Club, where 12 teams from various Dundee and Angus Secondary Schools tackled a live business challenge in a competitive environment and up against tight deadlines!

This year’s challenge was to come up with a business idea for a circular economy business.  Our team had to design 2 posters containing specified information, they were then asked to make a short presentation to a panel of judges representing the Chamber of Commerce GR Donald Fund.

We received support throughout the event from our local business mentor, Corah Edgar from Blackadders Solicitors

The winning team were Arbroath High School with their shell recycling scheme.  Despite not winning overall, the 4 participants from St John’s RC High School had a fantastic business idea, worked exceptionally well as a team and really enjoyed the experience.
