We had plenty of comments to read through, and they were very really useful.  Any views expressed will be discussed by the senior leadership team.  As a staff we feel that the debate about homework is probably the most interesting: we will make this part of the agenda for Parents’ Forum this half term.  There are often polar opposite views about homework – parents who want more, parents who don’t want any! – but we feel a review is called for.  What do you think? What model would you like to see? What about consistency, quantity, variety?  Be prepared to let us know.

Finally, staff work very hard, and even though we may not always get it exactly right, it is a reward in itself to read the feedback.  We are always trying hard to do our best.  The responses provide a lovely pat on the back and on behalf of the staff I would like to thank you for spending time letting us know what you think. 

 

Every year we ask parents for feedback on aspects of school life and use the information provided to focus improvements: you can read the results of the 2019 survey here.

Feedback is always welcome, so if parents ever want to pass on comments about the way we work we are genuinely grateful - partnership means listening!  You can speak to a member of the Leadership Team informally or make an appointment to come in and meet us.  There is usually someone available immediately, but if not a meeting can be scheduled. 

 

Parent View

Can you help us?  We would be very grateful if all parents could complete the Ofsted Parent View questionnaire on line.  This is a simple form – largely the same as the questionnaire we ask parents to complete for us in the spring term - that is used by Ofsted to get a snap shot of parental opinion at a school.  Every summer the data is stored, and if sufficient families have gone on line a simple summary is available for parents, prospective parents and Ofsted themselves.

During 2016 – 2017 we aim to encourage parents to register their views.  Please try to take 5 minutes and support us by doing this.  Use the link and you will find it is very quick and easy to register.  It would be fantastic if most people managed to do it.

​REMEMBER - Parent View is a way of registering your views, but if you have an issue or a problem at school it is essential that you go and speak to staff about it, either the class teacher or the Head teacher: unless you do so they cannot help you or your child!
