Parents sent in their views about the Brain Booster Homework.

Response: The school will be developing the Brain Booster homework over the year. The children have access to lots of different homework via the VLE. This year we have added CGP books to work on core skills. These are practice SATS books that are free to Year 2 and 6. Year 3, 4 and 5 can buy them for just £1 from the office. We have also added Reading Buddies and more information will be made available to parents about this resource.

 

Parents asked about testing.

Response: The tests carried out at the start of year are not like the SATs which have to be done by law but are used by the teachers to find out what they need to plan in the lessons. Children are tested at the beginning and throughout the school year.

 

Parents have asked if the school could text them earlier with information rather than on the morning as they are getting to school.

Response: The school are always looking to improve on communication and will do their best to get information to parents on time. 

 

Parents have said that the new batch of school PE t-shirts isn’t very good quality.

Response: We always aim to keep parents costs down and go for the best value.  In this case they will look at this batch and evaluate the quality and cost before placing the next order.

 

Working parents would like a change in the time of the Impact Meetings to the evening.

Response: Unfortunately Impact meetings have to be held in school time as they are for parents to get involved with their child whilst they’re learning. An option the school are considering is to film these meetings so parents who can’t attend would be able to see this online.

 

Parents have expressed concerns regarding the portions of school meals.

Response: Meals are very carefully prepared and children are always encouraged to help themselves to the salad.

Menus are available online and from the office for parents to talk through choices and every year we offer the parents a chance to come into school to sample a typical school meal.

 

Parents were concerned when the money taken by pupils onto school trips varied between children.

Response: The school always advises a set amount which would cover the cost of a small purchase from the gift shop, as this aims to ensure fairness for all.

 

Parents suggested as alternative to cakes and sweets, the parent could contribute the cost of a new book for the library on the child’s birthday and put a sticker in it with their name and birth date to celebrate their special day.

Response: Mrs Armstrong will look into this suggestion and set up a scheme in the new year.

 

Parents have asked that if a child has dietary requirements for example if a child is vegan, that the teacher can help them at snack time to understand what food is there that they can eat/drink.

Response: Parents are advised to inform the office and teachers will be made aware of this and help a child where necessary.

 

Parent request: Defibrillator

Response: Mr Sudbury is looking into leasing or buying costs

As part of their English studies, Kingfisher 1 are reading the book ‘Shopping Basket’ by John Burningham.  To link the story to a real-life experience, on Thursday the children went on a trip to Sainsbury’s where they filled their own shopping baskets.  After queuing beautifully at the check-out, the children handed their money to the cashier and waited patiently for a receipt.   Back at school the children made the most of the wonderful weather, tasting some of their purchases al fresco in the playground (yummy)!  What a great day out.  Well done to George, Calvin, Jack, Arin, Bilal, Alexander and Georgie.

Thank you for your cooperation

Please show consideration to parents with buggies by leaving the area outside the gates clear.

It can become very congested at home-time and this makes it difficult for parents with buggies and other children to exit safely.

Thank you for your cooperation.
