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

Issue 2, Brighstone Buzz, 16th September, 2016

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we have now completed our first full week back at school; the children have shown a real sense of enjoyment and engagement in their learning. We have welcomed two new teachers into school this term: Mr Wilson in year 6 and Mr Givens in year 5. It has been a privilege to see that the children have quickly built up a positive learning relationship with them.

I would like to thank all of you for ensuring that your children are in school on time and in their correct uniform. It is important that the children have a genuine sense of pride in their school and their own appearance. Your support with this, as parents, is much appreciated. I am also delighted to share that the school’s attendance figure for the first three days back at school last week was a fantastic 100%. It would be amazing and so beneficial for the children’s education if we could continue with the same high level of expectation for attendance.

This week the Year 6 children have been applying for a range of roles and responsibilities in school. They have taken on the process with a great sense of maturity, responsibility and purpose. Their letters of application clearly show that they have put a lot of thought into it and that they have a desire to do well. Across the rest of the school the other classes have been electing their School Council representatives and the School Council met with Mrs Pugh for the first time today. I know that the children will have some valuable ideas that will make a difference to our school.

In our collective worship we have continued to explore the core value of love and what this means in our daily lives. This week the focus for it has been ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself.’ This has helped the children to think about how they treat one another and how they can help each other.

I wish you all a happy and restful weekend.

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.
