PARENT ATTITUDE QUESTIONNAIRES

I have now completed my responses relating to the 2014 PAQ’s. As you have been able to see, the overall responses have been overwhelmingly positive. I have not listed the plethora of positive comments in the Wednesday Weekly but I will use these as part of the school’s self-evaluation report. The comments that you have provided in terms of how the school can improve have helped us to evaluate our provision and improve practice where possible. I am very grateful to all of you who took the time to respond and I look forward to undertaking this process again in the next academic year.

 

OUTDOOR MATHS DAY – MONDAY 13TH APRIL

On Monday 13th April we will be having a whole school outdoor maths day. Children will be problem solving by using a variety of maths skills. Please ensure your child has appropriate outdoor clothing e.g. waterproof coat and wellies, if necessary, in school on the day
