Results-of-parent-questionnaires-Spring-2016

Dear Parents/carers

 

Thank you to everyone who responded to the Parent Questionnaire.  We received 100 responses in all, which was very pleasing.

 

These have been collated and the results appear on this Website under “Office” – “Statutory info” tab for you to look at. 

 

In most categories your responses were very positive and show a genuine satisfaction with the education your sons/daughters are receiving.

 

I would also like to thank those parents who took time to express further comment. Many of the comments were positive and illustrate the hard work, commitment and skill that is evident on a day to day basis when visiting the school.  Some comments direct us towards areas for future development and going forward I can assure you that these will be carefully considered by The Finance and Resources Committee and when action points are planned they will be communicated to you via the monthly Newsletter.

 

My best wishes to you all.

 

Sue Gray Chair of Governors

Au Revoir Mrs Renouf!

20160429 132958

On Friday the school bade Farewell to Mrs Renouf, at least for the timebeing, as she goes home to 'rest' for a couple of weeks before the birth of her first child. We would all like to send Charlotte and Dan our most sincere best wishes for a smooth delivery. There is a lot of excitement and deliberation in the school as to whether they will have a boy or a girl and we look forward with eager anticipation to hearing their good news in due course. To say our 'good-byes' the whole school gathered in the hall and each class presented Mrs Renouf with a handmade card, each of which had been put together by the whole class. Cherry Class stood at the front and read a few pages from Green Eggs & Ham (Dr Seuss), which is her favourite children's book. They had changed some of the words appropriately for the occasion. Au revoir Mrs R! Love and best wishes from all at St Michael's School.

Staff changes...

It's all happening this term; a welcome return, a sad departure, a happy departure (and hopefully eventual return!), and two fabulous new recruits!
We are so pleased to see Mr Mallon back from sick leave and our thanks go to Mrs Rawson who deputised in his absence. Mrs Rawson will sadly be leaving us at the end of this term to take up a new post at a school nearer her home. We are currently in the process of recruiting and will inform you of her replacement as soon as possible. We would like to express our thanks for all her hard work over the past 13 years and wish her every success in her new school. We also welcome two new members of temporary staff: Miss Thomson in Reception class working Thursday and Friday, and Mrs Bokmans in Year 2 who will be covering Mrs Renouf’s maternity leave. We hope they will find St. Michael’s school a wonderful place to teach. Mrs Renouf’s last day will be Friday 29th April, and we all wish her well with the birth of her first child. Watch this space!
