pupil voice

Back in the Spring term, we conducted a survey with our pupils to find out what they thought about our school.  The picture they gave us was hugely positive and followed closely on the heels from the wonderful feedback families gave us at the parents evening.

We have recently conducted a range of follow up surveys, again with the intention of collecting the 'pupil voice' - their opinions on their school.  Again, I'd like to share a few of the headlines results:

  • When asked if they liked being at our school, 100%  of our pupils answered "Yes/Most of the time".
  • Asked about if they feel safe in school, 100%of our pupils answered "Yes/Most of the time".
  • 98%of our pupils answered "Yes/Most of the time", when asked if they like the rewards that we have in school.
  • When asked if they thought the rules and consequences were fair, 99%of the pupils answered "Yes/Most of the time". 
  • 98%of the pupils feel that they are making progress.
  • 100%of our pupils answered "Yes/Most of the time", when asked if they get help and support in their lessons.
  • 99%of the pupils feel that the adults in school listen to their ideas.
  • 99%of the pupils believe that they could talk to an adult if they had a problem.

I am sure that you will agree that these results are once again very positive and reflect the amazing work going on in our school.

The pupils also told us what they thought we were doing well and what we could do better:

What are we doing well?

  • The teachers aren’t boring and their lessons are fun.
  • Helping children, including those who are new to the school, to make friends.
  • Letting the children eat their lunch on the Grange.
  • Installing the trim trail equipment on the Grange.
  • Making sure that we each care for each other.
  • Arranging amazing school trips.
  • Teaching us how to respect one another.
  • The teachers support and care for the pupils; they listen to pupils when they are going through tough times.
  • Encouraging pupils to play and use the Grange and woodland.
  • Planning fun topics.
  • Reliable teachers - I think this means permanent teachers.
  • We help each other out.
  • Staff get involved with the children and know about what interests them.
  • School facilities have improved.
  • Teachers are giving the pupils a good level of challenge. 
  • Pupils enjoy doig DT work/junk modelling.
  • Pupils like the rewards system and enjoy getting stickers for good work and housepoints for behaving well and showing the school virtues.

It would be even better if:

  • The consequences were stricter.
  • We had more sports events.
  • We did more technology lessons.
  • The Year 1 classroom had a better cloakroom.
  • There were more school discos.
  • Mr Albert had more tea parties as a reward.
  • The school had more 'gaming' lessons.
  • The MUGA was supervised at lunch so girls get to play football too.
  • Assemblies were more interesting
  • There was a football pitch on the Grange.
  • Older children got to work with younger children sometimes.
  • Longer breaks and lunchtime!
  • We made the school into a Secondary School too!
  • The school had a swimming pool!

We aspire to keep our children safe, at school and online...
