Parents comments on how we can further improve Head Teacher's Response


Since COVID parent interaction has reduced and I looked forward to parent/children sessions.  With my older children I had the experience of working with them . . . which I have missed this time round. 

We missed this too!  It is so lovely to return to face-to-face Parents Evenings and parents being invited into classrooms.  My favourite so far this year has been the Showcasing Events in class.


Ambassadors - children should be [changed] per term, or even month, giving other children opportunity to become Ambassadors.

The Ambassadors remain the same throughout the year, however they do recruit throughout the year to provide further opportunities for other children.


School car park, need more spaces

The school car park is for staff only and this is signposted at the entrance gate to the car park. 


More updates on my child's progression.

Your teacher is always present to provide you with an update.  At Parents Evenings there is opportunity to discuss progress and look at school work.


I think you should be much concerned about kid's health.  If a kid is unwell, you would allow the kid to stay at home until the kid is absolutely fine.

Children's health care is extremely important to school.  We will always encourage children to come to school, however if a child was too ill to be in school we would always contact parents/carers to take their child home.


School Jotter App

Only 81% of respondents have downloaded our Jotter App.  If you have not downloaded the app, scan in the QR code below and choose Diamond Wood Community Academy.

Letters and Newsletters are still the most useful sources of information to parents/carers, but it is fantastic to see that parents/carers have downloaded our School Jotter app and find the app messages useful.

We are encouraged to see that you have such open communication with our staff and that you are happy to approach us with any questions you may have.

Overall, not a high number of parents/carers are accessing the website.  The address is:
