A message from Governors …
Parent Working Party
Our school are striving to work closely with the wider community, including parents to make our great school even better. Yesterday the first Parent Working Party gathered which saw us review the Parent Survey completed in the summer term. Firstly, thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable feedback. It was great to take the opportunity to review this with a unanimous conclusion that the school offers a happy, safe environment for your children to learn and grow and we should all be very proud of this.
There were a couple of areas that were sought for improvement and these are our starting point to address during our termly meetings. 
The Behaviour policy was an area for further clarification from parents which has resulted in a Behaviour Meeting earlier this half term, hard copies being sent home as well as the Behaviour Policy and Behaviour Blueprint located on our website. Paper copies will again be available at Parent Consultations over the next half term demonstrating our 3 B's.  Time was also spent discussing the recognition boards in class and how these work.
There is a diverse selection of clubs at lunchtimes and after school but this will be monitored to ensure that there is inclusion for everyone as this was a point to be addressed. 
Knowledge of the progress of your children was raised as a potential concern as well as knowing what is being taught during the academic year. We offer our class pages with an overview online but this will also be further developed to allow parents to access and view the curriculum and areas of focus for each term. This will roll out in the coming weeks. It is also the ideal time to provide reassurance that should there be any concerns over how your child is progressing their class teacher will contact you directly. It is a no news is good news, as confirmed in the Communication Policy that should there be no contact from school then your child is progressing as expected. 
Please remember the Consultation Evenings are an ideal opportunity to discuss things as well as should you have any concerns the school have very much an open door policy. There are a couple of occasions over the coming months for parents to come into school and celebrate your children through Busy Ends of the day as well as the invitation to collective worship.
This is an exciting time as we start out with the Parent Working Party and the opportunity to work and act closely on feedback on what we do well and aspects to improve. As always an area that was mentioned to improve was Communication however was decided that given the current headaches we are experiencing with both emails and the website we would leave that to our next meeting, rest assured it has not been forgotten. 
Should you wish to join us please look out for future dates as it would be great to build on this for the future of the school.
The next meeting will take place on Monday 23rd January 2023.
