Consulting with Parents


We are very keen to listen to what parents have to say about the school, so that we can continually improve.

Please share any concerns or suggestions with any member of staff. In addition, the headteacher or a member of SLT (Senior Leadership Team) is usually available at the main school gate in the morning. Otherwise, please send any comments or suggestions either by email or in writing to the school office. 


Home Learning Survey: Jan 2021

Thanks to everyone who took part in our recent home learning survey. A summary of the results is available here:

Annual Parent Survey: March 2020

Thanks to everyone who took part in our survey. We had 124 responses, representing about 20% of the school. All of the questions had a positive rating of above 90%, with 100% or respondents agreeing that we have a good range of subjects being taught in our curriculum. Almost everyone felt that their child was safe and happy at school. The results have been shared with staff, governors and the leadership team, and help inform our future plans. We read all the comments, and follow these up as necessary.

The main positive areas commented on were:

  • Friendly, approachable and caring staff
  • Inclusive, welcoming and supportive atmosphere
  • Wide range of activities, including sport, art and music
  • Strong sense of community

Areas for us to explore further:

  • Reviewing the school menu
  • More focus on modern foreign language teaching
  • Parking
  • Notification about events
  • Behaviour rewards and sanctions 


The next full survey will be in March 2021

Parent Helpers

We welcome offers of help in school. If you are able to spare some time helping with activities such as cooking, arts and crafts or listening to the children read, then please speak to your child's teacher. 

We also need parents to assist on school trips and camps. 

It is a requirement that all adults working with children have a  DBS check. This can be arranged through the school office and takes usually around a week.

There is more information in the Parent Helper's Handbook, attached below.
