Parent Questionnaire & Feedback
Parents Questionnaire Feedback
Strengths of the School
Suggestions for future developments…
We are always seeking to improve our school for our pupils, parents and all parts of our school community. See below what parents thoughts are regarding how we can further improve and how as a school we continue to address these issues.
“Can we have clarification around Homework and how we can help at home with times tables? ”
All homework across school is sent home each Friday. Homework topic webs are sent home the first Friday of each half term and homework can be brought in during the half term in relation to this. EYFS will also receive topic homework from Autumn 2.
Each Friday, Year 2– Year 6 children will record , in their reading diary, the test score they achieved on the weekly times table test and also the times table that the child is currently learning so parents can help at home. From Year 3-Year 6, the children will also record the test score they achieved on the weekly spelling test in their reading diary. In Year 1 & Year 2, the children will continue to bring home the spelling test each week with the new words to learn for the following week. Reception children will be sent home tricky works from Autumn 2.
All children are expected to read at least 4 times a week and this should be recorded in the reading diary. Children in Year 5 and Year 6 receive additional English and maths homework each week.
“Can the website include important dates and copies of letters, etc sent home?
Parents say they appreciate the weekly newsletter which holds all the important dates for events in school and provides relevant information. We endeavour to provide as much notice to parents as we can regarding events in school but occasionally there might be a special event which crops up, where not as much notice is provided. Any changes to dates will be recorded in red on the newsletter.
From Autumn 2, parents will be able to access any letters, forms, etc, sent home from school via the school website under the Parent section. As well, the calendar will be developed further on the website
“Can further opportunities be developed for Performing Arts ?”
We are proud of the enrichment opportunities we offer children and the wide range of clubs at school. This year we are excited to offer further opportunities for children to develop in the Performing Arts. Already, the Drama club which has been offered has been successful, and we also have plans to produce a end of year School Production and also a Talent Show!
It has been a privilege reading all the parent questionnaires. We always strive for excellence in all we do but we do appreciate your honest and open feedback so we can improve. Remember we have an open door policy and will always listen and help when we can!
