General Comments and Suggestions by Parents and Carers
It is really important to St John's to ensure that we obtain Parent feedback regularly. This information allows us to see where our strengths lie and also the areas in which we need to improve.
We sent out our latest Parent and Carer Questionnaire in the Spring Term 2019 and we were thrilled with the results.
Please take some time to read the results and also the parents comments made. The Children's names have been removed from these comments.
Thank you to all of the Parents and Carers who responded.

Improved Playground: The Friends and Families of St John’s group are fundraising to purchase a permanent play fixture for the playground. The school is also trying to apply for funding where possible to help make our playground an exciting and fun place for the children to play and learn.
Greater access to more after school clubs – In the past we offered paid after school clubs to cover the cost of staffing but found parents were unable to afford to pay for such clubs. Staff have offered to donate their time, free of charge, for us to provide a range of activities to enrich the curriculum for our learners and to allow all our learners to be able to access a different club once a term.
