Thank you so much to those people who completed our Parent Questionnaire. It has been extremely helpful in helping to develop our school improvement plan.
Of 23 responses:
96% agreed or strongly agreed that their child is happy in school.
87% agreed or strongly agreed that their child makes good progress.
100% agreed or strongly agreed that their child is well looked after in school.

We also completed a children’s survey, a summary of the results can be seen below:
100% said that they felt happy in school.
96% said they were making good progress.
100% said that our school looks after them well.
96% said that behaviour is good.
96% said that there is no bullying in our school.
100% said that they felt listened to by the adults in our school.
90% said that their teacher let them know how well they are doing.

I know that you will agree that this is a very positive picture and is a real compliment to all the hard work and dedication of everyone in our school community over the past few years. We have now updated our school improvement plan (which you will be able to find on the school website soon) based on this information, alongside the information gathered from the ‘free text’ section of the questionnaire.
The main additions/updates to the plan are:
To ensure that parents and children get more regular updates about attainment.
To investigate the possibility of a school breakfast club.
To increase opportunities for creative arts in and out of curriculum time.
To ensure that the curriculum is appropriately pitched and challenging for all children.
Whilst each of these is important, the proposed timescales are variable and dependent on various factors. It is vitally important to note that if you cannot see your comments reflected in the above, that they have been logged and will be addressed in the future.
Again, thank you for your ongoing support. Please do not hesitate to pop in if you would like to discuss anything further.
