Pupil Questionnaire Feedback

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback from the parent questionnaire that was given out during Parent Consultation Day on Wednesday 18th October.

Each term we use these results alongside pupil interviews, pupil questionnaires, staff questionnaires and assessment data to decide on successes, next steps and questions for the academy. These were the best results yet – they were overwhelmingly positive. I feel that it is important that you have an opportunity to see the results if you wish to. Along with the numerical results, I have added just a few of the comments made from the hundreds that we received overleaf. We were all overwhelmed by your kind words.

We also genuinely appreciate your constructive feedback. Already we have started to use the results to make our academy even better for everyone. I am extremely happy to say that we have now managed to secure funding to get the perimeter fence project completed. This work will be carried out early in the new year.
Some parents have asked that we ensure our communication with you is more efficient. We strive to ensure that you are kept informed and up to date. However, sometimes we do not get this right. If you ever have any concerns or queries, I welcome you to contact me to gain clarification. I am happy to receive emails at the weekend and I will try my best to get back to you as soon as I can –

Spar Community Project

You may have noticed that the area outside the main reception has been given a makeover thanks to volunteers from Spar on Taylors Avenue. We were lucky enough to be selected by Spar as part of A.F. Blakemore’s community volunteering project. We would like to extend a huge thank you to the employees that came and volunteered, their hard work has certainly paid off! – what do you think?

Their award winning community volunteering programme encourages employees to make a significant, positive contribution in the communities where they live and work.
