Barlby Bridge Primary School: Parent Questionnaire 2016-17

Your views about our school are important to us. Over the past three years we have changed and adapted many of our school policies and practices as a direct result of feedback from parents. This year we are using the same questionnaire format as Ofsted as well as some questions of our own. We have added a comments column after each question and would encourage you to tell us more about your answer.

Please tick your child’s year group

Never had issues with bullying so cannot answer.

Had no problems, but feel it would be dealt with effectively.

Have been issues with bullying and although children were spoken to felt there should be more repercussions.

Haven’t had experience of this.

Dinner staff sometimes treats complaining as a nuisance.

Low level bullying needs to sometimes be given more attention.

Agree it is dealt with well but there are problems with one child in the class.

Great school, friendly and helpful staff.

Moved child here from another school and very pleased I did. It is a lovely school with warm atmosphere.

 

Can you tell us about any aspect of the school over the past 12 months which has pleased you and you would like to see us continue with?

  • Forest Schools
  • Good work celebration assembly – This is a brilliant way to encourage children to develop an enthusiastic attitude to school.
  • After school clubs
  • Support for my child and action plans in place to support child whilst in school
  • Variety of school events
  • The issues with parents parking and driving down the street have been and are being death with.
  • Open mornings in class are very informative.
  • Feel the support children receive is fantastic and has ensured they have made excellent progress.
  • Parent sessions for different curriculum areas to get involved in children’s learning. Assemblies focusing on important issues or achievements.
  • Support for children taking part in residential trip.
  • Children encouraged to improve many skills.
  • Completely satisfied with progress child has made. Healthy approach to learning, holding children’s interests without making subject matter mundane or too much to overload young minds.
  • The change in homework from termly to weekly.
  • The atmosphere and approach in the Nursery is lovely; it is great to have the opportunity to come in for Stay and Play. The Nativity was lovely, well done.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed assemblies and seeing what children have learned.
  • School does an incredibly good job.
  • Child has settled into school really well and happy. Teachers communicate well with parents and are very reassuring if a child is upset. Staff are welcoming and always have time to speak.
  • Child 2 Build a profile (Nursery)
  • Enjoy regular email updates in Nursery, it is very informative and helps us to carry on things at home.
  • School is so friendly and warm. The children are lovely and polite.
  • Parent sessions are good and allow parents to see what the children are learning.
  • I really think it is the best primary school in the area.
  • I love the work on Growth Mindset and feel my child really benefits from this. The school also promotes excellent social skills and independence.
  • Learning outside of the classroom- good to see children learning in different environments such as local school trips.

Is there an aspect of the school that you would like to see improved?

 

  • More outdoor lessons
  • Offer before and after school care
  • Wider variety of after school clubs
  • Teachers in Nursery ensuring they are careful who they release children to (Historic issue)
  • More reading opportunities for parent and child- reading together in school.
  • Bullying issues.
  • Letters sometimes don’t have correct information.
  • Better safety on the roads and pavements outside school. Parking on Thomas Street and not sure if school can do anything about it legally. It is only a matter of time before a child gets hurt- a near miss every day. Know the school regularly mentions the problems in newsletters and signs outside school clearly state this. It is the same parents who are being ignorant every day. Road/ pedestrian safety is a big issue which school to well to try to improve but has little effect.
  • More notice for Stay and Plays so parents able to rearrange working hours.
  • More homework- such as spellings to help  at home.
  • Christmas plays would be better for each year group so that all children can take part.
  • Support for children who are struggling so they don’t miss assembly or playtime such as an after school club.
  • Children could be pushed more in reading.
