Parent and Pupil Voice
At Copley, the voice of our pupils and parents is important to us. In order for us to keep being the best we can be for our children, we need to review and reflect. Parent and pupil voice helps us to do this. At various points of the year, we will find oporuntities to collect both parent and pupil voice on various subjects. From this, we can notice what we are already doing well and how we can improve. Take a look at some of our most recent examples of both parent and pupil voice and the actions we have taken in response to these.
"Every member of staff I have interacted with has been superb - staff members truly care" "Such a wide variety of activities going on all the time" "A friendly atmosphere for children to learn in" "You regularly exceed my expectations and wow me with the amazing support and opportunities you provide" "Every child at Copley is made to feel valued" "Behaviour and Inclusion opportunities are fantastic" "You encourage each child to reach their individual potential" "The school is warm and welcoming" "There is an amazing sense of community here" "Great variation of out of school activities" "Very inclusive for children with additional needs" "You genuinely have my child's best interests at heart" "You create special days and special events" ""My child is loved and supported at your school" "Teachers are a credit to the school" "The facilities are amazing!" "Children are constantly challenged"
RSE Parent Consultation
We recently conducted a parent consultation in to RSE. We made a selection of resources available for parents to view and a survey to complete afterwards. It's really important for us to gather the thoughts of our parents. The results and the actions of our results are in the survey below:
READING SURVEY FOR PARENTS/ CARERS (March 2023)
We recently sent out a questionnaire to find out more about the reading habits of children at Copley, at home. Thank you so much to those of you who took the time to complete this. We were very pleased to receive 106 responses which helps us to build a picture of reading that takes place out of school. It also helps us to generate ideas to further promote reading and to decipher how we can help. Here are some of the findings:
- On the whole, attitudes to reading at home appear positive with 78 out of 106 parents or carers feeling that their child or children are very confident with reading.
- 83 out of 106 reported that their child or children enjoy reading at home and 82 of those and motivated to do so.
The survey suggests that children are reading regularly at home, even if not daily.
Our next steps after conducting this survey:
- Ensure that all parents and carers know how their child (and themselves can become members of the Calderdale library services.
ACTION: a text was sent from the school office that provided the relevant information to do this.
- Send home, or add to the website, revised lists of recommended reading materials for each year group.
ACTION: there is now a revised list under the reading materials for each year group.
- To start a book club, in school, during the summer term.
