Art Gallery Survey results (46 responses)

Thanks to everyone who responded to the survey. The responses will really help us shape the arts in our school in the future. Also, I would really appreciate the parents who said that they had specific skills could make themselves known to Mr Palmer. Thanks.

I enjoyed the art gallery

  • Yes (95%)
  • No (5%)


Do you have any suggestions as to how the Gallery could have been improved?

Many people said it was perfect. Suggestions included:

  • More people taking money
  • One way system around the hall
  • Child’s names on all pictures
  • Too expensive (Several people mentioned this, however the company charged £6 per picture to frame the pictures as well as to provide the frames and canvases. School charged £1 per picture to raise funds)
  • Other fundraising at the same time- ie arts and crafts that the children have made.


Did your child enjoy the art gallery?

  • Yes (100%)

Did your child enjoy creating the art work for the gallery?

  • Yes (100%)

Did the time of the art gallery suit your circumstances?

  • Yes (91%)
  • No (9%)

Is it something that the school should do again?

  • Yes (91%)
  • No (9%)



We are constantly trying to improve the Arts in our school. Do you have ideas as to how we could do that?

  • Make little pictures- more of them for the money.
  • Lower the price but do it several times a year –ie (seasonally)
  • Children should go to art galleries to see art work.
  • Similar event involving parents
  • Have it in ages groups
  • Christmas decorations/Christmas cards and then gallery before summer
  • Extra curricular classes
  • Outdoor art fixtures
  • All art work on display
  • Children decorate  as a class sections of a wall
  • Arts workshops for parents to attend with child
  • Forest school activities
  • Children to be allowed to perform in dance and drama- not just in tiny parts of a school play.


Do you or a relative have any music/dance/art related skills that you would be happy to share with our children.

  • Degree in textile design
  • Crafts
  • Samba drumming
  • Dance school

Are there any other arts related clubs/activities that would like to see taking place in our school and would you be happy to pay for them?

  • Different types of dance classes
  • End of year productions for other classes- fee for guaranteed seat.
