You spoke, we listen: Since our parents/carers were asked their views in November 2019, we wanted to improve the way we communicate what the children are learning and how better to support them at home.
To that end, we improved the school website, which now provides both an overview of topics in the year groups as well as more detailed curriculum maps which can be found within: https://www.featherby-jun.medway.sch.uk/Curriculum-Maps-19022019132217/ and https://www.featherby-jun.medway.sch.uk/Classes-at-Featherby/
Additionally, parents of Reception children are invited in to school to take part in phonics lessons with their child in January 2020 and will receive further guidance about how we teach phonics to their child so they can support their learning.
Extra-Curricular Activities and Wider Development
- 78% of our parents felt the school supported their child’s wider development
- 75% of our parent/scarers felt that there were a good range of clubs and activities available to their child.
You spoke, we listen: We recognise that the lack of extra-curricular clubs has been affected by our introduction of wrap-around care during 2019. It is something we are currently working on as we aim to offer a range of activities and experiences to every child and we will be providing more choice of activities in 2020.
However high those figures are, we strive to reach 100% in all these measures and so we are continuing to learn from the comments, suggestions and ideas of our families.
