Feedback from our Parents
At King Charles we value communication and put great emphasis on ensuring that we communicate with parents and carers – listening to, and sharing with each other.
Each Spring Term we ask our parents to complete a questionnaire to help us gather views, ideas and concerns. In Spring 2018 we recieved this feedback from our parents and were delighted with the overwhelmingly positive feedback. Just as important as the successes, we listened to your ideas and shared how we plan to move forward.
At the end of each year when sending home our ‘end of year reports’ we invite your feedback on the report and the year as a whole. Here is a copy of some of the comments that were received. Again we were overjoyed with the feedback and of course, listened to your ideas and concerns and added these into our whole school development plan for the coming year.
The IMPACT of your feedback:
*Helping with Home Learning – some parents requested further support in how to help their children at home. This is something that we are working to include in our ‘meet the teacher’ meetings as well as through our website. We will keep you updated through our website and newsletters.
*Lunches – some parents raised concerns over the variety of meals provided. This has been shared with our catering provider and already our school council have been involved in making menu choices.
*Sports – a few parents asked about adding a more competitive element to our KS2 sports days which we put in place in Summer 2018. Moving forward, Mr Harris (our PE Leader) has lots of other exciting ideas about ensuring a degree of competition is included in what is already a successful part of our year.
*Communication – Ensuring that we communicate with you quickly, effectively and easily is vital. We’re adding to our ‘communication streams’ through using Facebook, e mailing newsletters to you and through our new Parents’ Forum.
*Parents’ Evenings – lots of parents asked that these were earlier to help know that pupils had settled well into the new year. From Autumn 2018 our first meeting will be in October (just before half term) which we know you will find much more beneficial.
