Headteacher Update and Parent Survey 29.1.21
We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time. To help us make sure we’re providing the right support for you and your child, we’d like to know your thoughts on our school offer and approach to remote learning. This will help us to find out what we’re doing well and where we could do better. An outline of our remote education offer can be found on our school website.
Our survey has just a few simple multiple choice questions and shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete. Please complete one form per child, as your feedback may vary between teachers and year groups. Can we ask that the forms are submitted by 9am on Monday 1st February please.
Please use the following links to access the appropriate survey as questions differ dependent on your child’s key stage.
KS1 (Year 1 and 2) parent survey
KS2 (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6) parent survey
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete our survey and providing us with valuable feedback.
This week, the Prime Minister has announced that it will not be possible to resume face-to-face learning immediately after the February half-term and instead hopes it will be safe to commence the re-opening of schools and colleges from Monday 8 March.
Schools have also been informed that they will not be expected to open during half term. Parents/carers can find up to date information about where early years and childcare provision is available in their locality here.
Next week we will be marking children’s mental health week; the theme this year is ‘Express yourself’. This is always an important focus week for us as a school but we feel that it is especially important this year. On Monday 1st February we would like all children to engage in the virtual assembly hosted by Place to Be at 9.00am, before completing related activities throughout the week, as set by their class teacher on Google Classroom.
Can we please remind you that if a family member is poorly, you have suffered a family bereavement, or your child is poorly, to report their absence to the school office in the usual way. This will prevent us from chasing families to identify why your child may not be able to engage in remote education for this particular period. We can also pass this information on to your child’s class teacher so that they can support your child whilst working at home and on their return to school.
This weekend may bring a further opportunity to build a snowman with snow forecast for Saturday once again! – Please take care everyone.
