Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

Issue 2, Brighstone Buzz, 13th September, 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Our school has been a ‘hive’ of activity this week! The children have settled in to the routines of school life and it is a real pleasure to see them so engaged in their learning.

The first school trip of the year was for the year 6 children, who went to UKSA on Thursday. They demonstrated courage and resilience as they tested the skills needed for dinghy sailing in gusty conditions. They returned to school with a great sense of achievement – well done to all of them.

Having Plum the Labrador in school last year was a real success and her presence in school had a significant impact on the well-being of a number of our children. When Miss Willcock left at the end of last term, Plum left too. This week the children were introduced to ‘Tango’ an eleven week old cockapoo puppy, who is going to be our school dog. In the early stages of her training it is important that she is familiarized with the school environment and socialized appropriately. The dog has to be owned by a member of school staff and live in a family home outside of school hours, so during the summer holidays I did a lot of research into finding a dog that I would be happy to own but that would also have an appropriate temperament to be in school. I would like to reassure parents that she will undergo all the relevant training that she needs and that all the necessary risk assessments will be in place. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This Saturday is the annual Round the Island relay race organized by the BSA. Can we regain the honour of winning this? I will definitely be at Isle of Wight Pearl to cheer on the runners as they complete the final leg of their race. Please do sponsor the various runners, this is an important fundraiser and the money raised benefits all of the children in our school.

We are still advertising for a Bus Escort, please do come and talk to me if you are interested, there is the possibility of being able to share the hours, or to do either morning or afternoon.

If you have any questions about your child’s learning please do not hesitate to speak to your class teacher or myself. I am in the playground most mornings and I am happy to speak to you informally or to arrange an appointment

Best wishes
Mrs Fox

Parent Survey – Feedback

“Brighstone School is an excellent school. Very happy with the progress my child is making”

“My child has come on in leaps and bounds and has massively surprised me. I am very happy.”

Thanks to all parents who took part in our recent Parent Questionnaire. We are proud to report that 100% of parents who responded said that their child is happy and feels safe at our school. The responses this year also show an overall improvement in the school’s performance in meeting particular pupils’ needs, supporting learning, receiving information about progress and dealing with bullying – and it was great to see that you feel we are good at keeping you well informed.

Our thanks to all parents who completed the questionnaire.
