PARENT ATTITUDE QUESTIONNAIRES
I have now received the results of the Lancashire PAQ and will be using the next few weeks to summarise the overall responses. The feedback that you provide is invaluable in helping to improve pupils’ experiences at Primrose Hill and I greatly appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. In total 1/3 of parents responded to the questionnaires and:
100% of parents/carers believe the school is well led and managed.
100% believe children behave well in the school.
100% believe that their child is safe and well cared for at school.
More results will be provided next week.
SCHOOL ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION SYSTEM – PARENTMAIL
Following the successful distribution of the Wednesday Weekly via email last week we will now continue to use this system every week. If there are any parents who haven’t already registered to receive emails then we would encourage you to do so as we hope to send out more correspondence electronically during the next term; in the meantime we will continue to send a hard copy in your child’s bag. If you have any queries or concerns then please contact Mrs Vost in the school office.
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE DAY
Everyone had a fabulous time on Monday with Lee Whiteley, Great Britain Paralympic sprinter. They really entered into the spirit of the event and were inspired by Lee’s remarkable personal journey!
