Have Your Say


A big thank you to all parents invovled in our reaccreditation for Leading Parent Partnership Awards which we gained on 10/10/16.

Thanks to you all for filling in this year's questionnaires, especially to new parents! We have noted that nearly all of you want us to develop extended provision to include before and after school activities. Last year's trial worked really well and was well regarded by all families who took part.

Developing this provision is really important for us and an issue we are discussing with governors. As you are aware one of the issues we have is to make the clubs financially viable and avoid taking money from school budgets. Many of you have stated that you would be willing to contribute to these sessions which is great. The main issues we have are around ensuring safe levels of staffing and transport.

We are looking into funding options including grants from Lancashire Break time and will hopefully be running holiday sessions later in the year.

We are in the process of contacting a range of providers to see if they can offer activities to our pupils.

Also remember that Scouts run on Mondays and Football on Thursday. We are now also running a sports and fitness club for Primary pupils on Monday from 3.30-4.15.




Response to Questionnaires

Your views are so important to us because we know we work so much better together. A huge thank you to all parents who supported us in responding to the questionnaire at the beginning of the year - 70% of you returned the form which is amazing!

The results, which are now published are fantastic and the number of positive comments received are overwhelming.  As a school and in consultation with governors we will now be looking carefully at your feedback and addressing the areas you highlighted for us to develop.


Headline Results :

All parents agreed the following :

  • Your child is safe and well cared for
  • Your child is taught well
  • School reports progress well
  • School is well led

Points for Action :

  • Helping parents understand how we help pupils to understand how to improve their work
  • Developing extended provision.


Our Response

As you already know this year target for our pupils is ''To talk about how well I am doing with my friends and staff'' We now just need to extend this to include parents in this dialogue.
