In this year of upheaval and change for everyone in our school community, we are hugely proud and heartened to receive such positive feedback from our parents, thank you to everyone who contributed to our Autumn Term Parent survey.

We are delighted to share some of the highlights from the survey and the actions we are taking as a result of the parent feedback.

When children feel safe and happy they are able to engage in their learning, be inquisitive and have confidence to ask more questions.

We are listening

Through the survey and your comments, we have recognised there is improvement to be made with the way parents are able to communicate with the school and improve the accessibility to our wraparound care.  To that end we will:

  • Install a new school telephone system so parents will be able to reach a member of staff in school hours.
  • Update the booking system for wraparound care, buses and lunches to make it easier to use.
  • Welcome parents back into school to celebrate children’s work (when Covid restrictions allow)

Finally, please remember you can always contact your child’s teacher or a member of the senior leadership team via the school office if you have anything you wish to discuss.
