On-line educational courses

Finally we wanted to let you know that the BBC offers a wide range of free, on-line courses for adults that you can study at home at your own pace.  The courses are very diverse and range from Maths, English and Science to gardening, family history and performing arts.

Further information can be obtained from the BBC website using the link below:


If you do use this website and would recommend a course, please let Mrs Crawley or me know and we can include your recommendation in the newsletter or on this website.

Parent surveys

Information Sharing Survey:
Last year we asked you to fill out a brief survey regarding the clarity of information you receive from our school. Many thanks to all those who completed the surveys; we were very pleased to learn that the information we send out is helpful and informative to our families.  We did note that families were less likely to use our website to obtain information, as a result we have now included a link to our website at the start of our newsletter so that it is easy to access; we also ensure our curriculum leaflets are up loaded onto our website as soon as possible at the start of each term; we also made the newsletter a little clear for parents to see what events were applicable to their children's classes and more recently we have set up the web page for the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA). 
To ensure we continue to provide information at a high standard for the year ahead, we would be very grateful if you could complete a similar, brief Information Sharing survey and return it to the office before Wednesday 20th July.  You have been sent a copy the survey by email; there are also printed copies of this questionnaire available in the office area. Many thanks for your continued support; we really appreciate your feedback.

Barnet Music Festival:

Thank you for those who have responded so far and for your positive comments, we are pleased that you and your children enjoyed the event so much. We understand from the feedback that the event is held quite late in the evening and whilst we can not influence the timing of this particular festival, as it is a borough wide festival, we will continue to aim to finish  events run by our school at an earlier time (e.g. the school disco).

Big and Little Readers Survey: 
Thank you for those who have responded so far and for your positive comments and helpful suggestions for future events e.g. parents giving talks to the classes, similar reading sessions with older children or maths sessions running through different maths techniques taught. We will consider these helpful suggestions going forward to the next academic year.  
Secondary Transfer Meeting: 
Thank you for those who have responded so far. It is good to know that so far 100% of those who have responded found the meeting useful.
