What do our children say about us?
Our children's voice is very important to us. This is what they say...click on the link below to go to our Video Media Centre
We love to hear how we are supporting our children and families and whilst we are keen to know how we can improve we also like to hear what we do well.
Above you will see the analysis of the last two parents' evening questionnaires. Where there is a high figure in the 'Don't know' box, parents commented on the questionnaire that they had not had any experience or had been at the school long enough to make a judgement. We are really pleased with the outcome however we strive to do even better for our children and parents.
Below are some comments our parents have recently made:
