Parent Views

In our most recent questionnaire to parents, we wanted to find out if our children and their parents are happy at Tower Hill. We are always striving to improve our provision and we use the results from the questionnaire and any comments in order to do this. 



Has your child happily settled back into school this term?



Have you found this terms parents evening useful in informing your of your child’s progress since returning to school?



Have you been signposted or told about ways that could help to support your child’s learning at home?



As a parent do you feel you have been supported in helping your children return to school?



Do you feel that the meet the teacher sessions at the end of last year and the classroom tour videos in July, helped your child with transition to their new teacher and class?


Comments from parents:
My child settled well in her new class. I think the virtual video showing the classroom and introducing the teachers was a good idea – she watched the video multiple times and felt more comfortable going in on her first day because of it.  (Year 2)
My son has settled really well in Year 3 and is very happy with his new teacher. He feels well supported and appreciated for his hard work. (Year 3)
The fact that you have still managed school trips and theatre workshops is fantastic so thank you. (Year 6)
I think you are doing an amazing job. My daughter struggles going in to school in the mornings but once she’s in she is fine – the support network that you have available is amazing and without that it would be a lot harder. I can’t thank you enough and truly can’t put into words how grateful I am. (Year 6)
Very happy with all aspects of this terms transition into Y5 – my son is very settled and really enjoys it. (Year 5)

Very pleased with all the efforts of the staff at Tower Hill to make sure kids are safe and happy back at school. Thank you, everyone, your help is really appreciated! We really liked the online parent evening. It was the first time in a long time that both parents were able to attend because of that.  We’d really appreciate to have the option to continue to do virtual parent evenings in the future.

Parents evening work packs that were sent home generated a really good discussion about the learning. (Year 2)


Comments about Home Learning:

I would like to say how much it has been with the online lessons.  It has given structure to the day, along with the pleasure of interaction with teachers and friends.  This has made my child happier to do some school work, but has meant he has appreciated his free time too. (Year 3)

Well done for the online learning support whilst my child was in isolation. A great help. Thank you 

This last week in isolation has been really good using Google classroom.  It’s helped break up the day and supported their learning.  I think it’s helped seeing the teacher and friends. 

I am impressed how school was well prepared for when my child's class had to stay home. It's great that children can still learn together and have lessons online with the teacher while at home. Thank you.
