Parents feedback

During the school year we hold workshops  to give parents the opportunity to see how learning has changed over the past years and therefore support their children at home.  These are informal and we have light refreshments which are free!  See the feedback below from parents who have attended our workshops.

A calmer less cluttered area to collect children from RW3
Not making children play out when very cold and snow is on ground
Parents forum on different days

What improvements can we make?

  • Parent’s evening  – a toy corner would be lovely
  • Could there be a different way of collecting children from RW3?  It is very difficult with a buggy in the alleyway
  • Ability to check dinner money account – very important
  • Children do not seem to get a chance to choose what they want for school dinner
  • Merit transparency
  • A proper sports day.  I think individual participation is just as important as teamwork
  • No football club for Year 3
  • Football club for Reception
  • Running Club
  • No smoking outside main gate – groups of mums (another parent put hear, hear!)
  • Not allowing parents to smoke just outside the school gate.  It doesn’t set a good example
  • No fine for taking kids out of school on holiday
  • Check the spelling on letters before they are sent out
  • For Harvest assemblies would the school consider having two shows so parents are not crammed in the hall and can actually see their children perform.  Consider the limit of people allowed in the space ie fire safety regulations.  As there were a lot of people for KS1 Harvest Assembly.  Would everyone be able to evacuate if needed in an emergency

Let us know your suggestions

  • Can children stand up for Harvest songs etc.  Very hard to see them
  • After school club (3 requests)
