At Wyton on the Hill, we are constantly striving to provide the best for our pupils within the context of our diverse and rapidly changing community.

In order to achieve this, we need your help!

Please let us know what we can do to help you and your child get the most from your school by completing a short online questionnaire on Ofsted’s ParentView. Your answers will be anonymous, but will help your school to be the best it can be.

The results will let us know what you think we do well (so we can keep doing it!) and where you think improvements could be made.

Better still, complete the questionnaire anonymously, then come in to discuss any queries, concerns or suggestions in more detail with a member of staff or with our Parents’ Forum group. Our door is always open and we can only improve with your help and support!


Results of Questionnaire for Parents and Carers December 2016
 
We always aim to be the best we can be and believe that we can only do this by acting on the feedback we receive from our parents and pupils.
In July 2016, we asked parents attending the KS2 Production to complete a short questionnaire and received 62 responses. Here are the results of the questions asked. Please note that where numbers do not add up to 62, this is because parents and carers have indicated that they had not experienced that particular issue / context and therefore felt unable to evaluate it.

Please read the following statements and tick the answer which best fits what you think about the school.

Whilst we were delighted that there were so many positive responses, we can see that we still have work to do. In particular:

1) Home Learning – 5 negative responses out of 62


Following analysis of the Parent Questionnaire we held in July, we have reviewed our Home Learning Policy and have made a number of changes to the way we structure our Home Learning which will improve our approach.

Most significantly, in the light of comments made on the questionnaires, we are in the process of setting up a Home Reading Journal with the children, which they will be bringing home in the next week. We are also formalising the weekly home maths assignment we started last week, which is in addition to our Mathletics.

We will also continue to provide our optional half termly ‘Can you..?’ home learning challenge, with an opportunity for children to display their homework and receive feedback on it. Pupil responses to this are becoming increasingly creative and our last project on the Olympics yielded some particularly original work.
However, we note that the percentage of pupils who take up the ‘Can you…?’ home learning challenge is fairly low and will continue to look for new ways of encouraging children to take their learning home.
Please see http://wytonprimaryschool.org.uk/HomeLearning.htm for the latest home learning challenge, as well as useful information and guides for parents.
Please note that Class Teachers now use our Class Pages to communicate information about Home Learning https://wyton.eschools.co.uk/website/home/62043.


2) Behaviour and Anti-bullying – 3 negative responses out of 62

The school continues to work towards being accredited as a ‘Rights Respecting School’ so that we can work on promoting a culture of tolerance and mutual respect for all pupils.
As a result of comments and suggestions from parents, we will be reviewing our lunch and playtime provision to ensure that our children are encouraged to play with each other happily and carefully.


3) Responses to any concerns raised – 5 negative responses out of 62

We are not aware that we have not responded to any concerns raised. If you feel that you have raised a concern that has not been responded to, please contact us, so that we can respond swiftly and effectively.
