Key Year Group Tracking

MMG Education’s Key Year Group Tracking reviews are comprehensive satisfaction and performance reviews covering the perceptions and experiences of parents and students from key year groups within your school. Typically it includes a selection from years covering:

  • Transition
  • Entry
  • Exit stages

Online surveys are developed and tailored for each group, leveraging from MMG Education’s experience and benchmark information. The online surveys cover all key aspects about your school relevant to each stakeholder and are designed to identify ‘gaps’ in views. The Key Year Group review is positioned to take place between the cycle of Whole of School reviews.

Why engage in a Key Year Group Tracking review?

The Key Year Group Tracking review monitors and tracks the perceptions, views and expectations of stakeholders across specific year groups. This is proven to be valuable for schools in monitoring transition effectiveness and behaviour and needs of each year cohort without over researching parents. It provides excellent information to the Head and leadership team as to how the school is performing from a parent and student perspective.

Major benefits

A Key Year Group Tracking review provides research based information of what each year group of parents and students ‘think and feel’ about your school and how these views change as they progress through the school. Other benefits include:

  • Guidance for staff as to where, what and with whom improvement is required.
  • Deep insights into parent and student views of a school’s performance.
  • To monitor the effectiveness of a school’s operational and strategic planning processes.
  • Demonstrate to parents of the school’s desire to listen, learn and act.
  • Identifies perceived performance in all key areas.
  • Identifies ‘gaps’ in views between parents and students.
  • Tracks performance from year-to-year.
  • Allows remedial action between ‘Whole of School’ reviews.
