Many thanks to the parents who visited school today.

We discussed several aspects of school life.


Parents were pleased with:
The provision and support that SEN pupils received.
The Always system and  support for managing behaviour and expectations in classes for pupils.
The improvements in the way our  Early Years pupils enter school and the transitioning for the youngest pupils from parents to school staff.
The development of our characteristics or learning and the Early Years work on Bucket Fillers and Dinosaur Learning.
The helpfulness of staff including the Reception staff
How approachable staff are and how quickly they respond to parents requests or concerns.
We also discussed:
How to further improve future transition arrangements.
Meeting the needs of parents with regards to Christmas performances
Informing parents of what we and PTFA are raising money for.
Using e-mail to communicate key letters to parents.

Parental Survey Autumn 2016 -Feedback letter to parents

During 2016-17 academic year we held several parents forums.

Parents were consulted regarding our new Always system, the National Curriculum, Pupils voice/well being, how school reports to parents and when. In addition parents came with their own individual and group questions for senior staff to answer. During the year each meeting was held by Mrs Conway and also attended by other staff including: Mrs Bingham(Deputy Head), Mr Scott (Lead Practitioner) and Mrs Burney(Learning Mentor).
