You said, we did

We've been talking to parents about things they'd like us to do differently.  Here are some of the things we've done already.

 You said


 We did

We as parents/carers need to talk to school more 


We now have regular Parent Forums 

 Year 11s need more involvement and responsibility


 We are now trialling a Year 11  Prefect scheme

 Rewards trips must be about rewards and not for everybody


 Only students with a Good or Outstanding Approach to Learning were allowed to go to Alton Towers or Camelot in July 2013

 What about rewarding students who 'do the right thing' consistently all year?


 We organised a special free trip to Silver Blades Ice Skating which the Parents' Association funded

 Parents want to know how to help their children with reading and homework


 We organised things like 'Supporting your child's reading' evenings and homework workshops for parents

 We want to know what the children are having for lunch in the dining hall


 We publish the menus now on the website

 We don't understand how you teach maths to our children in the primary phase

   We organised maths workshops for parents to show how we teach addition/subtraction/multiplication/division

 We need Parents' Evenings to be more user-friendly

   We displayed names and photographs of members of staff and a diagram showing where they could be found. We will work on a leaflet 'Getting the best out of a Parents' Evening'
 We are concerned about the closure of the Parkway Field Gate    We are planning to instal a padlock which designated Primary Phase parents will have a key for
 We are concerned that some parents are sending children back to school too soon after a tummy upset    We sent a letter home to all Primary Phase parents to remind them to wait 48 hours before sending their child back to school.  Nurse Angie Teeling has written some advice for parents about this for our next Newsletter


If you'd like to talk to us, members of the Senior Leadership Team would like to hear from you at the next Parent Forum meeting.
