Share your views through Parent View

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

Please register with an email address and a password at Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

We at Sandhill View School fully recognise the contribution we can make to safeguard and support the students in our care.
There are four main elements to our safeguarding policy:

  1. 1) Prevention (positive school atmosphere, careful and vigilant teaching, pastoral care, support to students, providing good adult role models, comprehensive anti- bullying strategy)
  2. 2) Protection (following agreed procedures, ensuring all staff are trained and supported regularly to respond appropriately and sensitively to safeguarding concerns)
  3. 3) Support (to students, parents\carers and school staff when any concern is raised and ongoing support to children who may have been abused)
  4. 4) Partnership – We do not work in isolation but in full cooperation with a range of external partners to ensure effective communication and a multi-agency approach to the safety of our students. In additions, we are committed to respond in accordance with Sunderland Safeguarding Childrens Procedures in all cases where there is a concern about significant harm.

  5. If you would like to raise a concern about the safety and \or well-being of a student please contact our Designated Safeguarding Officer, Jan Edmundson or the Nominated Deputy, Amy O’Donnell on 0191 5616060 Ext 40575.
