Leading Parent Partnership

Leading Parent Partnership Award

In the spring term we informed parents/carers that the school was embarking on the Leading Parent Partnership project. Questionnaires were sent to parents and an additional questionnaire was made available at Parent Evening to enable school to gather feedback about different aspects of the school.

Here are the results of the questionnaires.

As you can see, there are lots of positive thoughts and feelings about how we support pupils and families at Nook Lane but we are always keen to find out how we can further develop and improve things.

As a result of the feedback several actions have been taken:

  • Parents were invited to take part in a parent feedback session with a focus on parent partnership development, homework policy review and communication with parents. On Thursday 20th June after school the 3 feedback sessions took place between staff and parents. The meetings were really useful and in the autumn term staff will be following up each area with a policy and action plan. These will be shared with parents later in the term. A big thank you to the parents who gave up their time to attend, your input was really useful. Child care was provided by the school to enable parents to attend these meetings.
  • Mr Arbon-Davis and Mrs Quick are working with a group of children to develop a child led newsletter for the end of term. We look forward to their news stories! Update: Our newsletter 'The Nook Laner : Issue 1' was published at the end of the summer term is available to download!
  • Parents also requested activities to be organised that were not within the working day - we hope that many of you had the opportunity to attend the after school art clubs during Art Fortnight and to attend the gallery evening on the 4th July.
  • A moving up/open afternoon was organised this week to enable children to work with their new class teachers and for parents/carers to call in for a drink and to have an informal chat with their child's new teacher. Drinks were served by Y6 pupils and it was lovely to see so many parents enjoying the sun!
  • A letter will be going out early in the autumn term to find out which morning parents would prefer to come into school for coffee morning. These meetings are really interesting and a useful way to get to know other parents in school.
  • Staff will be around at the end of the day, both in the class and playground, if parents would like to come down to school to discuss anything with their child's teacher. Staff do take part in a weekly staff meeting after school on Thursdays so this is not a good time to catch them. Staff will always respond to phone calls if you are not picking your child up from school.

Work on the Leading Parent Partnership will continue in the autumn term and we will continue to keep families fully informed of our plans from your feedback.

LPPA - 2013/14 Autumn Term Update

We are continuing to work on this project in school. In the summer term parents were invited in to discuss homework, home/school communication and parent partnership. Thank you so much to all the parents/carers who gave up their time to give very valuable feedback about each area.

We are now developing each area and policies for homework and parent partnership will be reviewed this term. Look out for more information about this project during the term.

On 2nd December 2013 we sent out a letter to update parents/carers on the work being done in school which is now available to download.
