I am concerned about the gate at the back of the school

We have had the gate checked by the police and Surrey safety team and it meets the requirements so nothing can be done at present.

My child is well looked after at this school

Too much too soon

The home learning questionnaire sent out recently revealed that 96% parents wanted to keep home learning.

The school responds well to any concerns I raise

More frequent SEND meetings.

I will feed this back to Mrs Francis - White

 

Sometimes too much and difficult then to sift through the important messages.

 

We wanted to send out information in many forms as a few parents find the newsletter too long and prefer text messages.

 

Sometimes it is difficult to keep up with all the information but I wouldn’t want any less!

 

Further improvements we could make

More sports competitions

We are in the process of joining Active Surrey and we have our first football match against St Ignatius in a few weeks.

Alternatives to wet play films

We can certainly look into this. We already offer art activities as well as a film. Any ideas would be welcome.

More feedback on the children’s progress and helpful strategies on how to support your child to improve

 

I will discuss this with the staff ready for the Easter reports.

 

Please could I come in and join the children for lunch?

We currently have 2 lunch sittings. We are hoping to get some picnic benches for the summer so packed lunches can eat outside. Then we would have more space in hall.

Keen for the children to be offered music lessons

The children can learn to play an instrument from Year 3 with the Surrey Arts team.

Clubs during lunchtimes

This is difficult as the staff need to have a break and prepare for the afternoon lessons. Hopefully as we get bigger we can open up classrooms at lunchtimes for different activities.

A few more after school clubs for Reception and Year 1 children.

Unfortunately, the club providers set age limits on many of our clubs. We try to offer as wide a range as we can.

Ramp onto playground from the back entrance

This has been explored but as there is a drain in the way it would be very costly to move it or work around it. We are looking at other options.

Workshops at the beginning of the year were helpful please could we have some more.

I will look into what we can offer parents to support the children’s learning.

We will be offering a Bug Club refresher session and a maths workshop in the summer term.

Remove the traffic light system for attendance/home learning on reports for children with disabilities or serious problems

This is definitely something that needs looking into for the future.

We love Hawkedale!

Hawkedale is a fabulous school – we love it!

Thank you

Some children hurt my feelings.

I am sorry about this we will talk about it in PSHE

8. What could we do to make Hawkedale an even better school?

More games and jigsaw puzzles

 

More trains

We can definitely look into this

Make assemblies more exciting with visitors coming in

I can also look into this too, if anyone has any suggestions please let me know

More outdoor learning

 

 

Plant more flowers

 

 

 

Put the playing field back

Yes, this will happen more as the weather gets better.

 

Miss Osterbery is always planting new flowers as we approach the Spring we will see them blooming.

 

Unfortunately, the field was often flooded and we were unable to use it. So our only option was to put down porous tarmac. We can now use it all year round.

More challenge

We are looking to change our maths scheme of work to include more challenges for the children – watch this space!

Separate desks

Then we wouldn’t be able to do the lovely group  work that we are brilliant at

Even more play

 

 

Less jumping before lunch

If we had any more playtime, then we wouldn’t be able to fit in all the exciting topic work we need to do.

Jumping before lunchtime is probably better than straight after lunch and good exercise for you.

 

More equipment for the playground

 

 

Playground markings

We are constantly looking to add more equipment to the playground. The PTA are great at helping to raise funds for the playground and all the pennies for play money will be going to additional resources.

An outdoor swimming pool

 

A giant slide

 

Ice cream truck

I would personally love the ice cream truck but unfortunately I don’t think these are things that the school budget can stretch too.

Everyone to be kind and helpful

To only say nice things to each other

Yes please, this would be lovely

Mums and dads to visit the school

 

 

More Mufti days

Mums and dads visit the school often for assemblies, book looks and exhibitions.

 

We have quite a lot of mufti days already anymore and we wouldn’t need to wear a uniform

More teachers

 

More subjects

 

More Geography

 

More laptops so we don’t have to share

We have all the teachers we need although as we grow we will need more and more teachers.

 

I don’t think we can fit any more subjects into our already full week

 

We already have 12 laptops, 15 tablets and 15 chrome books for the children to use. We update our IT regularly to ensure that we are up to date with technology.

More school trips

Gosh, can we fit any more trips into our school year?

Each class has at least 3 trips and 2 workshops each year

Make it bigger!

 

 

More children

I am sorry but we cannot get any bigger

 

We will get 30 more children next year and 30 more the year after. When we are full we will have 210 children!

Nicer vegetables at lunch

I will discuss this with the school cook and see what we can come up with.

I am planning to send out a school lunch questionnaire to all parents and children to gauge opinions on school lunches.

I have spoken to the catering team and am regularly giving them feedback on quality, portion control and children’s likes and dislikes.

Nothing

 

Keep it just as it is

 

I can’t think of anything

Thank you
