Growing and learning together

July 2015

At the end of each year, we ask our parents to complete a questionnaire. The results from July 2015 are below. There is always room for improvement, but we are pleased with the positive comments and responses given by parents.

  • More spaces in cookery club/for child to be able to take part in it more than once throughout the year.
  • Extra after school clubs, with more places.
  • Ensure kids are following healthy snacks habits at least in school.
  • Case by case decisions on taking children out of school for holidays with educational purpose.
  • The continued review of sports provision and to ensure that the proposed building work and temporary classroom do not detract from the playground/sporting facilities.
  • More school trips.
  • School gate to be opened when an event is on during school hours.
  • Holiday homework- maybe small project or diary?
  • I would like to see even more Art.
  • Even more specific information on what our children are being taught each week.
  • A short guide for parents on the basics of English and Maths teacher methods please. More workshops eg. Maths.
  • To be given some information about the assessment system that will be used next year. Will levels still be used on a day to day basis? If not, how will progress be reported to parents? How will the children understand their own progress and next steps?
  • Tea parties. Hot dogs/burgers at school disco.
  • More fun activities for year 6 after SATS. Even if it is a fun school trip that is funded by parents.
  • That the school carries on being a great school and it doesn’t change just because it will grow in number of pupils.
