Views Of Our School

At Barons Court Primary School and Nursery we value the views of all of our community. Throughout the school year we ask for feedback from parents and pupils on what we are doing well and for improvements that can be made to make us even better.

Views of our pupils

Following our recent pupil survey in July 2018 we have outlined the actions that we will be implementing in the forthcoming year following our detailed analysis.

"We would like to learn more French throughout the school."  We have reviewed our MFL curriculum and all children learn French throughout their time at our school from Reception to Year 6, we will evaluate the impact of this new curriculum with our children throughout the academic year.

"We would like to extend our outdoor learning further by having more trips to museums." We are working with our Pupil Teams and Phase Leaders to ensure that the visits we implement continue to enhance our exciting curriculum throughout the new academic year.


What we did in response to last year’s feedback:

"We would like you to let us go out and play even on a rainy day!”- In the past academic year we purchased more waterproof clothing so that all children could play outside even in the rain and snow!

"We would like to have different options of food choices at lunchtime" - We worked with our Pupil Leadership Team to introduce ‘My Food: Our Food’ into our school lunch menu and we will continue to provide baguette options for our Phase 4 children.

Views of our Parents

Following our recent parent survey in July 2018 we have outlined the actions that we will be implementing in the forthcoming year following our detailed analysis.

Enhancing the work of the school nurse throughout the school - We have a number of different CLIC programmes being implemented for parents throughout the academic year which will be provided by health organisations - keep a look out on the weekly newsletters to ensure you can book a place on one of the workshops.

Phases to showcase their learning - As a school we will be reviewing the opportunities we provide for you to work alongside your child to support them with their learning experience. This will be through open afternoons and also through the opportunity to explore learning in a variety of different ways, such as productions and assemblies.

Reviewing the times tables challenge - Our children really enjoy learning their times tables and achieving their certificates in our celebration assemblies. We will review the award system to enable a platinum challenge task for children to work towards.


What we did in response to last year’s feedback:

Providing appropriate information about the curriculum the children are following – The school throughout the academic year 2017-2018 reviewed the school website to ensure that accurate information was shared with everyone. We introduced a termly Phase Newsletter and have reviewed our weekly newsletter to include all elements of the curriculum and learning which the children are enjoying to support home/school learning experiences.

Communicating expectations of homework more clearly to enable support at home – Throughout the academic year we held a number of homework coffee afternoons so that parents could share their suggestions for homework. We reviewed our homework policy with clear expectations of homework within each phase and shared this on the school website. Pupil study books were introduced for our Key Stage 2 pupils to support elements of independent learning and self study. 

Review the children's preparation for sports tournaments - Clubs and extra-curricular activities throughout the past year have reflected the sporting tournaments we have entered as a school. Last year we improved our performance at a vast majority of sporting events. We also introduced specialist coaching for some competitions where children across phases had the opportunity to enhance their team work further in preparation for tournaments, this will continue again this year.
