Encouraging an enthusiasm for learning that lasts a lifetime.

Parent Survey 2014

 

Thank you to everyone who completed our survey in December. We had some lovely comments about our school and some good ideas about how we can continue to improve. We always value suggestions and observations at any time – please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any worries or concerns - or compliments!

A sample of some of the headlines from the survey told us that we are good at:

  • Pushing children to achieve their potential.
  • Making learning fun.
  • Making the children feel part of the school community and offering a range of after school sports for the children.
  • Trying to help with personal problems.
  • Offering a caring environment in which to learn.
  • Dealing with bullying effectively and promptly.
  • Making children feel valued.
  • Integrating the new year 3 children into the school and making them feel so welcome.
  • Looking and responding to the individual needs of the child.

You also told us:

  • There is an extremely positive approach to socialising and educating children.
  • The Headteacher and his team create a very friendly and caring environment.
  • The school encourages learning, respect and care.
  • Staff are kind and caring and always have time for children and parents, but also have high expectations for behaviour and work.
  • The school celebrates success.
  • The school cares for the children and deals with any problems quickly ensuring that the child is always put first.

Some of the areas for us to develop further are outlined below:

Areas to develop:

What we will endeavour to do in the future:

Text and email information – more information on the website.

We always add the school news letter to the website and we will now look at adding any year group letters to this in the future.

On-line payments for everything ( eg trips, dinner money, music etc.)

 

This is currently being looked into by the office staff. We need to be sure that any on-line payments is secure and “user friendly” for our school.

Lunchtime supervision.

We have employed another midday supervisor to give us more flexibility at lunch times.

Giving more notice when children are going to be involved in plays, assemblies, receiving awards.  Lots of parents work, as I do, and as much notice as possible would be appreciated.

We will endeavour to let you know at least one week before your child/children star in our Achievement assemblies.

Church services, special assemblies and school productions are always advertised on the school newsletter – we will do this at least one month ahead of the date.

Ensuring that quieter children’s voices/thoughts/comments are received.

We try to listen to all children especially in each class. At whole school level we try to use the weekly school council meetings to listen to all children’s opinions. We have a newly formed “Ethos group” with the governors – if you child would like to be part of this please let Mr Kershaw or Mrs Ellis know. The group meets at least once a term after school for about an hour.

Giving us an update on our child’s progress on a more regular basis for example, at the end of each term, or half term, just small bullet points not a full report or parents evening.

We are always trying to find ways to improve our communication with parents/carers.  This will be a priority for us during the next two terms.

Internal data on progress is good.  Parents who don’t have an understanding of levels / APS or don’t know what questions to ask may not find it so clear.

The way that parents are informed about their child’s progress is changing across the country. Levels and APS – average point scores – are disappearing and we will keep you informed about the changes as they emerge.

Communication – letters specifically to the class (although the new Homeroom app  for Reception is great).

We have year group information about the curriculum on the school website.  We will look into how we can give you more information about your child’s class activities and news items.

Uniforms – better quality.

The PTFA has been looking at different suppliers. If anyone knows a good supplier then we would be very interested to be put in touch with them – please come and see us or talk to a member of the PTFA.
