Feedback

We regularly review how well we are doing in school and where we might need to make improvements. In doing so we take account of the views and opinions of a wide range of groups within our school community.

What suggestions were made?

More info on school app – We welcome any suggestions for what information parents would like us to include, please call into the office and speak to Mrs Barow

It’s hard as the homework is very generic for all abilities and doesn’t always stretch – Homework is differentiated and should be appropriate for all pupils.  We ask parents to speak directly to their child’s teacher to rectify any homework concerns and then speak to Mrs Friend, headteacher, if difficulties continue.

The children need to know and be aware that bad behaviour will be ‘punished’ in some way – We are consistent in our approach in handling behaviour.  Where children do not follow school rules consequences are given and we work as closely with parents as possible.

PEN! …. Would do anything for a pen!….. struggles with writing and I feel it is unfair for him to feel he is unable to achieve PEN because of this.  – All children get to use pens during the year, some children who are ready use pens on a more regular basis.  It can cause more upset for a child if they are making lots of mistakes whilst using a pen as thye can not be rubbed out.

Lunch options are limited for ….. e.g. jacket potato 2-3 times per week. – The annual menu is put together with consultation from parental feedback during the year, choices made by children and their views.  Where a child has specific dietary requirements the cook will provide an annotated alternative menu.  There is a 3 week menu where the main choice is different daily.  There is a second option which varies from jacket potato, hot or cold wraps, Ploughman’s lunch and includes other choices.  Every day the children have access to a salad bar.

Survey of parents/carers Autumn 2016

From the questionnaire we were able to identify that parents/carers were unsure what the school does to tackle any bulling concerns.  This is what we are doing and what we have planned over the coming term:

  • Our Christian ethos and values (Outstanding SIAMs) that we refer to regularly in class and assemblies promote respect, fairness and tolerance of others
  • KS2 Class Assemblies to raise awareness of bullying (Cyber bullying, how do deal with different scenarios, respect, what is bullying)
  • Values day that linked to anti-bullying / Blue for Bullying
  • Visit from NSPCC
  • E-safety ambassadors
  • Play in a day promoting respect
  • Y6/YR buddy system
  • Lunch club
  • Learning Mentor – running nurture and SEAL groups
  • Middays run ‘planned activities’ at lunch times
  • Teams and Clubs are for all pupils (not gender specific)

What actions do we take if concerns are raised?

  • Listen to all involve fairly
  • Log any incidents on CPOMs to keep a record
  • Offer lunch club
  • Speak to parents (including regular updates)
  • Behaviour plans
  • Offer nurture groups/SEAL to support both parties / time with learning mentor
  • If specific issues are identified additional circle time / PSHE sessions are delivered in class

Further Actions

 

  • Up to date pupil voice questionnaire (what are unsafe situations, what forms of bullying, is school safe, how is bullying dealt with) Use Beacon group
  • Display reflecting KS2 assemblies (use one of new notice boards in space between hall and practical room)
  • Ethos group to create own anti-bullying assemblies for their class
  • E-safety ambassadors to feedback to rest of school
  • Research LGBT – what do we need to discuss, how to go about it (Stonewall website)
  • Class Assemblies next half term ( Session 1 – opening views, then 4 sessions-Gender role models, Family structures, upsetting words, appropriate use of the internet Last session – what have you learnt)
  • KS1 to have two assemblies on a Tuesday am based on gender role models and family structures
  • Identify any further outside agencies that could deliver addition sessions.
