The survey has also given us somethings to further consider:

We think it is a great idea to have a ‘new starter’ page on our website and this is something we will be implementing.

Homework continues to be the area with the most diverse comments; these range from ‘We would like more,’ to ‘we don’t agree with homework.’ After a previous Survey with similar results, we followed it up with a further detailed questionnaire specifically on Homework. This formned the basis of our current policy. Please look at the 'Homework' tab on the left and read the 'Homework Introduction' section for more information.  If the expectations don’t match your experience you are invited to please inform the school and we consider any views as we update our policies.
