5 parents/guardians commented that the “School would be better if...”:

- Further space could be provided for children to eat their lunch

- More regular and personalised feedback

- More space could be provided for the amount of children on roll

- More targetted and specific homework activities

In order to ensure that parents comments are received and taken under consideration, we have implemented the following improvements at the start of this academic year:

- Liaising with Kirklees services (providers of our school dinners) to see how we can use technology to further enhance our lunchtime provision to ensure that children have ample time and space to eat their dinner. Our school council have also been looking at ways to reduce the amount of waste created at lunchtime and the amount of plastic that is currently being brought into school in lunchboxes and in school dinner juices cartons, straws etc.

- As well as our Parents Evenings, held biannually, we are always keen to continue our communication with parents with regards to their children's academic progress. In addition to the PTM (Progress Tests in Maths) and PTE (Progress Tests in English) reports which are sent home biannually; the Accelerated Reader reports (4 times a year); the areas for development sheets in Y2 and Y6; half termly Parents Webs; Welcome to Key Stage meetings; assessment evenings and SATs evenings, we have also provided access to a vast array of online communication platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Class Dojo, OurSchoolApp and our school website where we always endeavour to keep you up to date with your child's progress within school.  Please asks any member of staff within school if you would liek more information about any of these.

- In terms of specific homework tasks, the children now have access to another wide array of online platforms on which homework may be set. These include Accelerated Reader, Times Tables Rockstars, DoodleMaths, Class Dojo, Oxford Owl and SATs companion. If you or your child require reminders about usernames and password, again, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
