We value all of your feedback and try and share the results with you and also to further improve the Academy.
By completing a short survey via parent view, we will be able to collect feedback on our academy. Please spend a few minutes completing the survey to contribute to our school improvement process.
Parent Voice Survey
Here, you will find the results of our most recent Parent Voice survey completed during our November 2018 parents' evening. As always we do value and thank you for your comments. Working together we believe is best for helping your children to develop personally, socially and progress in their learning.
A number of parents have shared concerns that some children are not being supervised by their parent / carer before school. We as a school review the safeguarding routines regularly. From Monday 26th November ’18 we will be trialling until the end of term both gates opening at 8.40am. An increase in staff presence upon playground should support pupils to enter school calmly and parents / carers to leave and proceed with your day.
Feedback from parents evening was positive in favour of this. We hope that this will support a smoother, calmer start to the day.
From time to time external issues that are not related to school unfortunately are brought onto Academy site. It is disappointing that this happens and as an Academy we will not accept any behaviour by any adult that may cause offence. May I take this opportunity to remind you that the Governors and Mr Edgerton (Executive Principal) are always informed of any issues that may arise on our premises. We are wholeheartedly supported by our Academy Sponsor (The Elliot Foundation) not to tolerate behaviour that may cause offence to pupils, parents, staff and the wider community. The Elliot Foundation will not tolerate conduct of this nature on its premises and will act to defend its staff and pupils. If a ban is in place for a specific time and instructions are not complied with removal from the premises by the police will happen. Prosecution under Section 547 of the Education Act 1996 and if convicted, liability of fines up to £500.
To end may I say that pupil behaviour continues to be congratulated and again comments from visitors this week alone have included “your children and staff are so welcoming and happy to share their learning”.
A big well done to you all!
