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

Issue 32, Brighstone Buzz, 7th June, 2019

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back, I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable half-term break.

What an incredible start we have had to this part of the Summer Term! Our year 6 children had a fantastic time in London on their residential. This gave them the opportunity to experience, science, history, music, dance and theatre in a wider context. They also had a valuable insight into democracy and government through their visit to the Houses of Parliament. Thank you to our MP Bob Seely for taking the time to talk to the children, this really added to their experience. Without the financial support of the BSA and the effort, hard work and organistion by Mr Wilson, the trip could not have happened – we are sincerely grateful to everyone that enabled this to happen.

On Wednesday the children in Year 3 and Year 4 went to Havenstreet to take part in the Country Dancing Festival. This is always an enjoyable occasion, the whole festival was an amazing event, with over 600 children taking part. A huge well done to all of the children, their behaviour was exemplary, their dancing was enthusiastic and a pleasure to watch. Thank you to all of the parents that helped with the transport, your support for the children is so valuable.

We are really pleased that we can offer the children at Brighstone a range of opportunities and this was recognized in our recent OFSTED monitoring Inspection that our ‘pupils enjoy a wide and stimulating curriculum’.

As many of you may be aware there is a supplementary consultation process taking place about school place planning in the West Wight. It is important that the voice of as many teachers, parents and local community members is heard for all of the schools in West Wight and that Brighstone is represented by as many of us as possible. More information can be found on the following links:   

During the coming week we have our monthly school service in church. This Wednesday (12th June) we have a service in Church at 8.40am, this will be led by Rev. Clive Todd. All parents, family and friends are welcome to join us, it would be lovely to see as many of you as possible there.

I look forward to seeing you at the various events and activities that we have coming up across the remainder of our term.

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.
