Miss Beckett.

The response parents gave to this question was very positive.
The 'top 3' recurring themes included:
1. Safety and security of the site itself - cameras, gates and environment inside.
2. Approachable and caring staff.
3. Positive relationships between staff and children and between children and children.

A couple of views made us think we could improve in the following ways:
1. Communicate with parents via text and twitter if an incident has occurred during the school day e.g. emergency evacuation practice. This will hopefully reassure everyone and avoid any confusion about what has actually happened!

The response parents gave to this question was generally very positive and the top 3 recurring themes included:
1. Homework Bingo is liked as it is giving children a choice.
2. This format complements the busy family lives we lead at Sherrier.

A couple of views made us think we could improve in the following ways:
1. Make sure the work set is appropriate for differing ability levels.

The response parents gave to this question was very positive.
The 'top 3' recurring themes included:
1. Parents like the use of twitter and found it a good way to find out about information
and learning.
Please note: There is a twitter feed on the website so you don't need to join to see the tweets!
2. The 'e-newsletter has been a success! Please note, we have paper copies available if you hear of anyone struggling to be online.
3. Communication systems such as door notices and messages in Boomerang Books for parents
unable to drop off or pick up seems to be a valued way of keeping in touch.

A couple of views made us think we could improve even further, in the following ways:
1. Provide text messaging / email service- this new website provider has been selected to achieve this mission! Please provide us with up to date
contact information.
2. The website has an app that can be used on most phones.
3. Our half termly C.L.A.S.S (Current Learning At Sherrier School) newsletters will be replaced by a similar e- format on the Year Group Pages of the website. These pages will be easier to be more frequently updated to 'keep you in the loop.'

The response parents gave to this question was very positive.
The 'top 3' recurring themes included:
1. Children "love Sherrier and all the fun things we do"
2. Children have really positive relationships with the staff.

replied yes.)

2. A growing choice for the younger children.
3. An appreciation of other clubs / sessions that are non-sporting such as art, sewing, Family
Phonics, Film Club, F1 Project.

A couple of views made us think we could improve even further, in the following way:
1. Provide opportunities for Foundation Stage children.
These opportunities will be made available during Summer terms when the staff feel the children have 'acclimatised' to the busy routine of school life!


The response is very positive but please always get your child to remember:
S.T.O.P - Several Times On Purpose
S.T.O.P - Start Telling Other People
Please contact school if your child is experiencing any friendship difficulties.


The response parents gave to this question was very positive.
The 'top 3' recurring themes included:
1. Children and Sherrier are polite and well-mannered.
2. Children are positive and friendly.
3. Behaviour is managed well.

A couple of views made us think we could improve in the following ways:
1. Make children more aware of how some children's behaviour is managed.
Behaviour Plans are written for children whom our Behaviour Policy does not cater for
appropriately.
These plans are written in conjunction with the Headteacher (Miss Beckett),Behaviour Lead (Mr Cooper), parents and the child themselves.
The intention now,is to share appropriate parts of the plan with the child's class (to ensure all involved understand what behaviours are expected and the associated rewards and sanctions for following / not following the guidance.)
