Parent Survey - Your Comments
In this year of upheaval and change for everyone in our school community, we are hugely proud and heartened to receive such positive feedback from our parents, thank you to everyone who contributed to the Autumn Term survey.
We are delighted to share some of the highlights from the survey and the actions we are taking as a result of the parent feedback.
What our parents say…
96% said their child is happy in our school
100% said their child feels safe in our school
100% said their child is taught well in our school
96% said the school is led and managed effectively
96% said their child does well in our school
98% said the school promotes a strong Christian ethos
94% said my child can take part in clubs and activities at this school
100% said they would recommend Brompton-on-Swale CE Primary School
Feeling safe and happy is at the forefront of everything we do. When children feel safe learning and achieving becomes limitless.
What do we do well, you said:
"Promotes a love of reading. Excellent incentives for children to want to do well with reward systems. Excellent communication with parents. Puts children at heart of the school. Wide range of extra-curricular activities."
"The administration team work really hard communicating well with parents and children."
"The school offers a varied education including the introduction to music (performance),art, sports. The school promotes inclusion and offers pupils the opportunity to grow outside the classroom."
"Everyone at school knows every child and there’s a real sense of community. The extra curricular offer is broad and the before and after school provision is exemplary."
"Well led, has high standards, expects high standards from the pupils but is a fun and engaging school for them.
Great relationships with children from most if not all staff members. Children are excited to see staff which creates a welcoming and safe environment for the children."
"After school activities on offer. Before and after school provision."
"Celebrates children's achievements attained within and out of school."
We are listening
Through the survey and your comments, we have recognised there is improvement/better communication to be made with the following:
|Suggested Improvement||What is currently in place||Further Action|
|Further communication with individual children’s learning.||
Three Parent Teacher Consultations throughout the academic year.
Two reports shared – Mid-Year and End of Year Report.
Wider curriculum communication- we feel this is a strength of the school through our sharing of termly class newsletters and also the regular updates on our Facebook page so that people at home can see what exciting activities the children have been engaged in, both in and out of the classroom.
With a school of 200 children and large class sizes in almost every year group, it would be a challenge to try and regularly communicate regarding every child’s individual learning in an official capacity.However, should you ever require further information or an update about your child’s learning, at any point in the academic year, then please do contact your child’s teacher and they will be happy to provide you with an update.
|More reading books||
Over the last two academic years our Reading Leader (Miss Turner) has worked very hard with our budget to try and invest in more reading books. We have also been supported by the PTA with funding to improve classroom libraries.
We have recently secured further funding from the English Hub to enable us to invest in more reading books.
The PTA have provided further funding to the school to support this.
We have also been contacted by the Parish Council who would like to donate money raised from the ‘Phone Box Book Swap’ in the village to allow the school to buy more books.
|More off site learning opportunities.||
We hope you have enjoyed seeing our children get out and about in the local community this academic year. FS and Busy Bees have been very busy taking part in various activities such as singing and litter picking. Last summer, Class 5 and 6 were also working towards gaining their Blue Peter Badges by helping out within the local community. We also had a recent visit to a local residential home from some of our KS2 children.
More off site visits have been planned for the remainder of the spring term and moving into the summer term.
With the improved weather we are looking forward to getting out and about more within our local community.
|School badge to stitch/ iron on uniform||
We feel that this is a really good suggestion, and we would like to look into it further to support parents with uniform. Thank you to whoever suggested this idea.
Finally, please remember you can always contact your child’s teacher or a member of the senior leadership team via the school office if you have anything you wish to discuss.
