Parent Surveys

A big thank you to all those who took the time to complete our surveys: 32% of school families and 49% of nursery parents contributed. Although these numbers are below 50%, we have still been able to view the results as being broadly representative of the parent body and to use the data to support the forward planning of the school.

A rather belated but warm welcome back to school to all children, staff and parents after the Easter break.


Well, maybe not so ‘warm’ as the country is currently experiencing winter-like weather conditions! We have a really talented 1st XI cricket team this year who are itching to get to grips with the fixture list - let’s hope our interesting climate quickly turns into Summer!

Just the other day I was in Prep 5W’s classroom for their English lesson on the subject of ‘Relative Clauses’ (nothing to do with Santa’s family!). I couldn’t remember being taught this when I was at school and I was amazed at how successfully the children got to grips with it.

So I was pleased when I saw the quiz below in the education press and could confidently answer Q4. (Actually I got most of the other answers right as well, but I’m sure that’s only because I know what’s going on in our classrooms, rather than  from my own education, which specialised in Science).
