Your feedback - what have we done about it?
•Communication – “We don’t always get letters from school.” All letters are now sent by email. Hard copies are available from the office on request. Two additional communication links have been established - the parent feedback drop box in the entrance to the school and a 'give feedback' (click here) section on the school website. All methods are in place to ensure communication is possible at every level even without coming into the school building.
"We need hard copies of letters." We provide hard copies of letters from the school Reception desk. A new letter holder has been added to the school reception area so parents can easily obtain any current letters in hard copy format.
•Meet the new class teacher - “Meeting in the Autumn term is too late to find out new routines and procedures.” These meetings are now held in the Summer term.
•Parental involvement - “We would like to be more involved with school.” As well as workshops that are run throughout the year, parents and family members are invited to have lunch with their children in school once a year and to class assemblies once a term. Additionally - the PTA are always looking for new members to support their fundraising ventures (please contact the PSA - Mrs Williams; click here for contact details). There are other events planned for parents to become involved with so please check your inbox for newsletters and letters.
*New for 2017/18 - "Inform parents after each term of the progress of their child by sending home a mini report and areas they need to focus on." We have a planned termly format for reporting progress to parents. This is in addition to our open-door policy and termly parent meetings.
Thank you for the fantastic response to the parent questionnaire this term and we aim to address all of your valuable feedback.
Mr Carter and the senior management team.
