You said...So we...

This page shows how we value and act on your views and requests as parents and carers. We gather information from parents' evenings, questionnaires, evaluations and from our Parent Council. Your thoughts and ideas are valued and help us in our drive to continue to improve our school.

You said… that you would like us to improve communication

So we…developed a brand new website and introduced a mobile phone app to enable easy access. We also established class blogs and a school Twitter page

You said…that you would like behaviour in school to be outstanding

So we… reviewed our Behaviour Policy; introduced new behaviour incentives and altered the layout of our school to support and encourage outstanding behaviour

You said…that you would like our children to receive more regular rewards

So we… introduced more ‘Stars of the Week’ and a termly Tea with the HT

You said… that our school uniform was of poor quality

So we… completely reviewed and redesigned our uniform and our children now look fantastic

You said… that the outdoor areas of our school lacked a Catholic identity

So we… replaced, improved and increased our school signage; installed a cross on our school tower and installed a beautiful new prayer garden

You said… that you would like us to help you to support your child’s learning at home.

So we… introduced Inspire workshops and regularly send home information about new curriculum and assessment changes

You said that we should improve our children's playtime experience

So we.... have created and invested in Playpods; zoned our playgrounds and completely reviewed our organisation of wet dinner time breaks.

You said that you don't always understand the difference between arguments and bullying.

So we... have invested in KIVA - a whole school approach to anti-bullying.

In our 2019 Parent/ Carer Questionnaire - 16% (replies from 5 families) still disagree that we would deal effectively with bullying.

So we...will hold a further KiVa anti bullying workshop in the summer term to ensure you are fully informed of our strong practice in this area.

In our 2019 Parent/ Carer Questionnaire 12% disagreed that the school takes account of their suggestions and concerns.

So we... will continue to ensure senior leaders are present at the school gates every morning, whilst also looking for other ways to ensure you feel listened to.
