'You said this.....we did this'
MANY THANKS TO THOSE PARENTS WHO ATTENDED OUR RECENT PARENT FORUM.
You told us that you wanted better home/school communication.....
We have updated the homework letter detailing relevant information about your child's current learning.
We have also introduced year group information meetings so that parents can hear a presentation about the upcoming year and chat to teachers. We have added information and guides to the website so that parents have a better understanding of how to support children's learning at home (check out Parents as Partners tab).
We now have a Twitter account - please follow us to see the latest snippets of school life!
We are using Class Dojos linked to parents' emails - you will receive a text message whenever your child receives a dojo with information about what they were doing well - something to talk about at home!
You told us that you wanted a later pick up time from After School Club for parents travelling from work.....
We have extended our wrap around care. Breakfast Club now starts at 7.30am and After School Club finishes at 5.55pm.
You told us that you wanted the school to invest more in reading and for your children to be reading 'real' books:
We have invested in Accelerated Reader. Children take a test to see what reading band they are in; they choose a 'real' book from their Accelerated Reader band; they then take a quiz back in school to gain points and move through the bands.
You wanted more consistency between classes in terms of what is recorded in the home reading records.....
We ensured that school staff respond to your comments.
You wanted a message book at Breakfast Club so that detailed message could be passed onto class teachers.
A message book has been provided.
You wanted us to communicate more clearly what the school does to ensure that bullying is rare and quickly dealt with.
We include updates on the newsletter.
