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 2019 we have outlined the actions that we will be implementing in the forthcoming year following our detailed analysis.

"We would like more opportunities for cooking within the curriculum." As a school we have devised our Food Technology curriculum which will provide greater experiences for children to learn to cook, both within the kitchen environment and the outdoors. We will continue to visit Waitrose for our cookery lessons and learn the importance of a healthy, balanced diet.

"We would like some more games in the playground at lunchtimes." Throughout the year we will be working with the PLT and School Council to plan and design some new areas within our playground. Look out for the new sound garden and the amphitheatre as the year progresses.

 

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

"We would like to learn more French throughout the school." Throughout the year we reviewed our MFL curriculum and all children learnt French throughout the year from Reception to Year 6. Children made good progress throughout the academic year and Phase 3 children particulary enjoyed their French day.

"We would like to extend our outdoor learning further by having more trips to museums." Throughout the year children enjoyed a wide range of visits providing lots of different experiences. The children visited the Council Chambers, experienced the raising of the Commonwealth Flag ceremony and visited two different universities. We have continued to organise a range of different trips for ths academic year which will continue to enhance our exciting curriculum.

Views of our Parents

Following our recent parent survey in July 2019 we have outlined the actions that we will be implementing in the forthcoming year following our detailed analysis.

Including a few more school trips within the academic year -  Parents have asked the school to implement a wider variety of trips for the children. We have reviewed our provision and each term every phase will enjoy one extended school trip in addition to our year group residential experience. Children will be enjoying visits to Belfairs Woods, Hadleigh Round House and Duxford this term, please look at for our Spring Term visits for your child. We will also continue to provide our local visits which see children out and about within their local environment on a weekly basis. 

Providing more opportunities for parents to visit the school and learn how to support their child's progress rather than just at learning conferences - We have planned a number of different experiences for parents throughout the academic year. We will be running a 'Learning Together' programme for all parents in Phase 2; providing showcase afternoons for parents in Phase 3 and running Phase 4 parent workshops within the evening. Please look out for the newsletters to see how you can join in with the wider work of our school. 

Creating more space and implementing more games for the children at playtimes - Throughout the year we will be working with the PLT and School Council to plan and design some new areas within our playground. Look out for the new sound garden and the amphitheatre as the year progresses.

 

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

Enhancing the work of the school nurse throughout the school - Throughout the academic year we held a number of different CLIC programmes which were run by health organisations - these included sessions on childhood illnesses, sleep workshops, gluten free cooking and sun safety to name but a few.

Phases to showcase their learning - As a school we provided opportunities for parents to visit their children's phase to work alongside their child and support them with their learning experience. We also provided a wide range of opportunities for children to showcase their learning experiences through productions, assemblies, the Barons Court Festival and the Grandparent Afternoon Tea.  

Reviewing the times tables challenge - Our children really enjoy learning their times tables and achieving their certificates in our celebration assemblies. Throughout the year we introduced the new way to learn times tables through Times Tables Rockstars, which the children (and parents) really enjoy.
