Parent/Carer Questionnaire Results 2014

Parent/Carer Questionnaire Learning, Safety & Behaviour June 2014

St John’s regularly consults parents/carers on a number of issues (at least once a term) and action is always taken as a result of your views. This term our focus is Teaching & Learning/Maths/Reading/Behaviour, so please help us continue to improve even further by completing this questionnaire.


Are you happy with your child’s learning this year?100% were happy with their children’s learning this year.
Has their reading improved?95% Reading Improvement.
Can you make any suggestions to help your child’s reading?Suggestions to help reading included, more 1:1 reading in FS, more tips for parents/carers to help, home reading over the holidays. Many parents/carers said they do read with their children and visit the library.
Is your child happy at school?100% said they were happy.
We have purchased ‘Bug Club’ this year to help with children’s learning, do you use it?64% were aware of Bug Club and My Maths, our online learning resource but it is not available to foundation stage pupils and so parents/carers were unaware of it. All agreed that it was useful and some used it a lot, some occasionally.   Many parents/carers were really impressed with it and pleased with how reading is taught.
St John’s data shows we are very successful in improving all our pupils learning, do you agree?100% agreed
Can you make any suggestions that would improve our learning focus?Suggestions included, more tests, more information to parents/carers about English and Maths tests so parents/carers can help more writing and reading in nursery
Are you happy with our homework policy?100% are happy with our homework policy.
Can you make any suggestions to improve our homework policy?Suggestions included more sentence making homework, Changing books more frequently as one book for a whole week can be boring, more number homework, a different book every day, homework is just the right amount, I think you are already doing a great job!
Do you like our traffic lights ‘good to be green’ behaviour scheme?100% liked our behaviour system.
Can you make any suggestions regarding behaviour schemes or behaviour?Suggestions for improvement – team points for good behaviour, more rewards for better behaviour as encouragement.

Thank you for your responses, they are clearly wonderfully supportive of the very good teaching and learning we deliver at St John’s. Parents/carers can be reassured that this will continue as we continue to provide the best possible education for all our pupils.

As a result of the questionnaire

We will continue our focus on reading and will promote how to help your child with reading courses and information in the next academic year. We have already strated more 1:1 reading in reception and this will continue. Although we encourage parents/carers to read over the holiday we don’t set homework but children do have their reading books.

The Bug Club and My Maths will continue for Y1 to Y6 pupils as it is so popular with you.

We will continue to send out class booklets and information specifically for English and Maths in September as we start the new curriculum.

More rewards will be given to our children for good behaviour.

Thank you for your help.
