Homework: As always homework proved the most commented upon issue – some parents believe their child gets too much, some parents believe they don’t get enough.  We will shortly be sending out a copy of our homework expectations for each year group – you will notice there is a set amount of homework for each child plus further additional activities – as well as those available on the school website.

Communication:  As a school we are always looking at ways to further improve communication with home. As well as our weekly newsletters, the school website is updated almost daily with photographs, stories and videos of things happening in school.  Be sure to check it out www.strantonschool.co.uk.  If parents would like to be informed of events via email please send your name, the name of your child and your email address to admin2@strantonschool.co.uk and we will add you to our mailing list.

After School activities: – a couple of parents asked for more activities for our youngest children in school.  Starting in January will be a new ‘Soft play session’ for our children in EYFS – watch out for details in the new year.

I was really pleased to see the positive nature of the vast majority of the returned questionnaires – the aim of all of our staff is to ensure we provide the very best education and experiences for all of your children – something we will continue to do in the new year buoyed by your positive comments. 

If at any time Stranton School does not meet your expectations do not hesitate to contact me directly via the school office (275595) or by email headteacher@strantonschool.co.uk.

For all we only do questionnaires once a year there is an online platform available for all parents to leave comments – the information on this site is available for OFSTED to look at when performing an inspection – so if you have 2 minutes spare please log on to www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/ and give your opinions online.

To finish I thought it would be nice to share with you some of the positive comments left on the forms…thank you once again for taking the time to give us your very important feedback.

Regards

Mr Neil Nottingham (Headteacher)
