The week ahead…

24 Jun

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. This coming week in school we have:

  • Miss Nickerson (our Y5/6 teacher next year) visiting on Monday.
  • Y5 pupils out at Tile Hill Wood Secondary.
  • Cycling proficiency taking place for Y6.
  • New Nursery parents visiting school.
  • The Summer Fair on Saturday – currently we are short of roughly ten helpers for the event. If you are able to help then please let the office or the PTA know as we want to ensure that we are able to run as many stalls as possible. Any help, even for only half an hour, would be massively appreciated.

In the past month we asked parents to take part in a questionnaire on Survey Monkey – this has now closed. We had a total of 51 responses with the following key headlines:

  • 98% of parents felt that their child is happy at Park Hill.
  • 98% of parents said that their child feels safe at school.
  • 92% of parents feel that their child makes good progress with a further 4% not knowing whether they do or don’t.
  • 98% felt their child was well looked after.
  • 96% felt their child was well taught.
  • 93% felt the pupils were well behaved.
  • 55% of parents feel that Park Hill deals effectively with bullying including: cyber, racist and homophobic. 41% said they didn’t know. We will take this point on board and convey further information of what takes place in school. All pupils are aware that myself and Tracey Bailey are the designated safeguarding officers who they can speak to about concerns. Within school we cover a range of bullying topics and in the first week of July, Paul Mercer (a police officer) will be coming in to school to lead a session on internet bullying.
  • 90% felt that Park Hill is well led and managed.
  • 72% of parents felt that school responds well to any concerns raised. 16% disagreed and 12% didn’t know. We aim to follow up parental concerns in a thorough and professional manner. If you have issues with how an incident has been dealt with then I would encourage you to speak to the school. It is important that we take feedback concerning issues you feel we have not handled correctly because this will help us to improve our practice.
  • 72% of parents felt the changes made since September had improved the school. 22% didn’t know and 6% disagreed.

Many thanks to all parents who took part in the survey – your feedback will help us to refine and improve practice so that we can make the school a better place.

On a separate note, the new Reception bulletin is available for this week.

Thanks for your ongoing support,


Steve Taylor
