How parents think we could improve
- More regular feedback on their child’s progression- specific feedback on areas of achievement and development so that parents can support this at home.
- Homework- interactive apps, resources
- Extra curricular opportunities
- PTA to fund raise
- Encouragement of more parental involvement
- Reading books- children moving on quicker
- Understanding what the day is like in the different year groups.
- Giving children more leadership roles
How we plan to address these areas for improvement
- Extra-curricular activities will begin again in September, starting with football club.
- PTA will have an AGM in September, elect officers and then take over fundraising.
- Meet the teacher meetings in September will help parents understand what is expected in the different classes and what a typical day/week looks like.
- Our new phonics scheme will ensure reading books are well matched to children’s abilities.
- Mr Dickenson will be running a school council this year for children from all year groups to attend. There will also be opportunities for play leaders again in Year 2.
- Feedback for parents- we are exploring the idea of monthly/half termly drop ins for parents to see their child’s work and discuss any areas with teachers. Parents will also be encouraged to attend workshops in areas such as maths, writing and reading. Teachers will inform parents of children who are receiving extra support and what this looks like.
- Homework and the use of Tapestry and Seesaw are also being reviewed.
