96% of parents said that their child knows where to go if they have a problem

87% of parents felt that their child receives appropriate h/w for their age

Response: The amount of h/w set is regularly monitored. As all students will take different amounts of time to complete h/w it is difficult to analyse how much time is spent on h/w. Based on the analysis so far, year 7 students currently receive slightly less h/w than they should. We will continue to monitor the amount of h/w set.

Comments – some parents commented on access to computers. H/w club runs every night afterschool. All students have access to printing on site. This has now been extended to include break time.


Please remember to check planners today, as to whether your child is able to leave early tomorrow, and make arrangements accordingly with your child.

If the school has not received the required permission from parents for a student to leave early, the student will have to stay in school until 2.40pm.

Thank you.
