SCHOOL FEEDBACK RESULTS


 

Dear Parents/Carers


Thank you for taking the time before the Easter break to complete the questionnaire about strengths and next steps of the school. We have now analysed your responses and will use these to continue to improve our provision.  

 

The following points were listed by many parents as strengths of the school:

    • Positive ethos

    • Recognising achievement 

    • Strong sense of community 

    • Good range of extra curricular activities 

    • Brilliant parent council 

    • Positive and pro-active atmosphere

    • Very informative newsletters 

    • Curriculum plans are very ‘parent friendly’ to understand

    • Inviting parents in for assemblies and open afternoons is great as it’s a lovely opportunity to see classrooms and to be included in what pupils have been learning

    • Trips are relevant to topics

    • Open evenings for P1 parents

    • My child feels like a valued member of school
    • My child has good relationships with support staff as well as teacher
    • Well organised homework – know exactly what to do
    • Encourage school uniform
    • Good communication with partners/agencies
    • Keep parents well informed
    • Good school
    • Helpful, caring staff
    • Sense of belonging/responsibility with children
    • Interesting topics
    • Link with other agencies/providers
    • Teaching current topics
    • School assemblies 
    • Teaching and looking after our children
    • Staff communication
    • Good response and helpful answers
    • Approachable, helpful, informative


  Some parents felt that the following points would further develop the school:  
    • More after school clubs, especially in light of the asymmetric week starting in August

    • Increased opportunities to view pupil work

     

    • More non fundraising activities to support local community

     

    • Opportunities for pupils to engage in public speaking

     

    • Greater time to prepare for World Book Day and dressing up events 

 

We will take on these points when planning for the future.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire.

Cheque Presentation

 

Further to the fundraising efforts of the Broomlands Primary School Parent Council a cheque for £5, 290 was presented to the School by Irene McKenzie, Chairperson of the Parent Council.

 

The welcomed cash will go towards the New Sound System which has been installed in the school, the purchase of 2 Smart Board Speakers for Primary 2 and to be put towards the costs of school trips.

 

Irene (right) is pictured presenting the cheque to Head Teacher Michelle Matthews.  Mrs Matthews thanked the Parent Council for their continued support.

 

 

Active School Travel Award

 

 


Congratulations!  Once again Broomlands Primary School has won the Kelso Area Active School Travel Award. This award is presented to the school with the highest percentage of pupils actively traveling to school.  The information is gathered in September as part of the National School Travel Hands up Survey.  All pupils in nursery, primary and secondary schools are surveyed on their travel mode to school and the results are collated for the Scottish Government.  The Junior Road Safety Officers will attend an award ceremony at Council Headquarters in March.
