Parents Forum: School Improvement Plan
Parents Forum: Our school improvement plan (SIP)
This was our first Forum and thank you to all those who could make it. It was so productive to get together and evaluate where we are and look to the future in a positive and open way.
I have attached the PowerPoint that I used to breakdown each area of the SIP and I have also attached the whole overview document. The overview document shows the targets for each area of the school. There is an action plan for each individual target but hopefully the overview gives you an idea of our plans.
To summarise some of the areas we then went on to talk about…
Q: How can we continue to work with and inform parents about the School Improvement Plan?
Responses: website, newsletter, regular meetings, via PTA and class reps, regular School Improvement emails
Q:Assessments and targets: How can we share these with parents?
Responses: on-line assessment tool (like swimming classes), shouldn’t over burden or add any homework element, use red books + and—comments– encouraging revision of anything tricky, bring home school books once a month for parent review
Q:Curriculum 2014: What would you like it to look like?
This was a question which has a great deal of material to understand. We concluded that we would do an evening Parents Forum to update parents on the new curriculum and start asking this question then. So a date for your diary…..Wednesday 23rd April 2014 7-8pm! Hope this is useful for everyone. The children will follow-up this with their input too.
If you have any further additions to these comments please do let me know via email, the office or 'good old-fashioned' letter!
So as you can see from the above question about the curriculum, our next Parents Forum is on Wednesday 23rd April 7-8pm. Hopefully, over the Parents Forum we can do them at different times and in different formats so that all parents have a chance to come along. All feedback is welcome- that's how we improve!
