School is excellent at looking after our child holistically

It is nice to see Mrs Birkett most mornings and afternoons which means information can be shared effectively

I also like dojo for seeing what my child is doing at school

Overall teaching of the children and welfare/care

 

What can we do to improve?

Communication of key dates as soon as possible to allow working parents time to make arrangements

Too much homework

Homework could be more challenging as on occasion done without any effort

More opportunities for sporting activities

Introduce field trips- perhaps overseas for older pupils

Reception start time a bit early

Perhaps clearer guidance on expectations with homework and instructions

Keep doing what you are doing

More after school clubs

More wrap around acre before and after school

Relax on rules a little now

Be flexible with amount of homework that is achievable

Trips swimming

Provide regular feedback on homework and classwork

School lunches have declined

Offer more zoom lessons during COVID times

More sporting offsite

 

Actions:

Expectations to be set for each year group on homework

Now COVID restrictions have lifted school trips to start again

Link with other schools to arrange more sporting events
