Thanks to the parents who have emailed requests regarding classes and teachers for 2019. As I have previously said, I will always do the best that I can to accommodate these requests, but please remember sometimes our options are limited.
Please ensure your 2018 fees are finalised by the end of this term. If you are paying by instalments please make sure this covers the amount owing. Contact the office if you have any questions.
Thanks to everyone who responded. The results of the surveys found they in general staff, students and parents are happy with the process to date. We identified some areas that we need to improve in, particularly with education of parents, consistency with staff and making sure that students understand that this applies as much in the playground and school visits as it does in the classroom.
Our plan is to address this areas from the start of 2019.
Improvements in Maths
I would like to publicly acknowledge the work of the students and staff on the improvements that we are seeing across the whole school, specifically in areas of Number via the Targeting Maths Initiative. Mrs Allibon and more recently, Mrs Allibon and Mrs Dent have been working to assist teachers improve their skills in the teaching of Number. Teachers have also been provided with the opportunity to observe other teachers teach and reflect on what they have seen and how this can applied to their classroom experiences.
