You asked....We listened
The views of our families are incredibly important to us. We strive to communicate effectively and in a timely fashion to our community of families, canvassing their views on school issues which we feel are of immediate concern to them.
Via surveys, questionaires and our formed Parent Council, we aim to listen to the ideas and concerns, in the hope that through dialogue, we can make changes where needed and when it is in the best interests of the children in our care.
'You asked, we listened,' successes include:
1. The request for an additional five minutes at the end of the Assertive Mentoring meetings to discuss any issues with the teacher without parents' children present; this was actioned and is now in place for those parents that wish to use this time.
2. Parents requested some additional guidance around what types of books their children should be reading. Each class teacher identified key texts for their year groups and added to a whole school reading list which was circulated to all parents. (This is available at the bottom of this page)
3. Parents and children enquired about offering a wider range of after school clubs. This has been acted upon and we now have a very wide range of extra curricular activities available including : art, sports, lego; zumba and yoga.
4. Parents requested a calendar of events across the year. Please find this below.
