Parent Survey - Your comments

Autumn 2021

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.


What our parents say…Children eating -2018-014-1024x768

96% said their child is happy in our school
100% said their child feels safe in our school
90% said the school makes sure children are well behaved.

Feeling safe and happy is at the forefront of everything we do. When children feel safe learning and achieving becomes limitless.

What do we do well, you said:
“my child is happy; safe and is making good progress…”
“The school children always seem happy, polite, confident. It’s a friendly environment”

What our parents say…Class-2-Penguins-2018-006

100% said my child does well at school

After so many months of balancing both in-school and online learning, we are deeply moved by this result. We have great pride in our team and will continue to grow and improve.

“Upbeat, positive, welcoming, encouragement, staff are happy to see you…”

96% said the school helps my child have a healthy lifestyle.

We are heartened by this result, we endeavour to offer a wide variety of opportunities and activities to enable all our children to try something new and become part of a team.

What do we do well, you said:
“…providing a wide curriculum including forest school…”
“…treating outdoors as the ultimate classroom.”
“..extra curricular activities, wrap-around options..”

We are listening

Through the survey and your comments, we have recognised there is improvement to be made with the way we communicate with parents regarding children’s learning and what is going on in school, you also requested more varied opportunities outside school. To that end we will:

  • Re-introduce class newsletters, issued at the start of term, outlining what children will be learning, any planned trips.
  • Advise parents of the best communication route for their concerns.
  • Share information on regular activities, such as Forest School, at the start of each year for all year groups
  • Organise opportunities for more trips and invite visitors into school to share experiences with our children now restrictions are being lowered.

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.
