Parent comments on how we can further improve

Head of School’s Response

 

Certain meetings that I miss out on due to working, I would appreciate more letters or teachers having a quick chat to update me on what I missed out on.  Working parents are not always able to make the sessions

 

We always try to our best to keep parents up to date via the school Jotter App.  For more information on how to download this, please contact the Office.  Appointments can always be made to meet your class teacher, particularly as COVID restrictions are decreasing.  Please contact school to make an appointment.

  

The school should tell parents not to park on the pavements, so I feel safe when bringing my child to school. 

 

Mandy Farrar (Safeguarding & Wellbeing Officer) is often outside, before school starts, to monitor parking.  The local Police work closely with us on this issue. 

 

  • 100% of parents/carers agree the school supports their child's wider personal development. 

 

  • 96% of parents/carers would recommend this school to other parents.

What do you think we are good at?

  • Helping Mums with toilet training.  I received alot of help with my child, which I really appreciated.  Playing/interacting with my child, as she is always happy when entering and leaving Nursery.
  • Keeping the children safe.  Teachers are good at explaining about my child's progress.
  • Constantly adding observations to the Tapestry app, so I can see what my daughter has been doing and learning in Nursery.
  • Communication and understanding the individual needs of a child. 
  • I like the teaching style, as my child understands what she has learnt at school and then tells me.  the teachers are fantastic, as they keep an eye on each child's wellbeing.
  • Since the start of the school year in September, I have been to 3 school meetings informing me of what my child will be doing and how I can help.    Thank you for the time and effort you put into these meetings to get us involved.  Thank you to the Head, Mrs T, for an amazing school!
  • School communicates well.  If I have any concerns, school listens.
  • The school is brilliant at motivating children to do the best they can.  they offer lots of school activities and make 'learning fun' as said by my daughter.  The main point for me is the communication from the Reception staff to the Teachers and the Safeguarding Officer, they are all only a phone call away and always return your call if I am unable to speak to them.
