At Westroyd we value the importance of home and school working together to support a child's learning. In order to support those links, the following opportunities are organised throughout the academic year:
In addition to this we always value feedback and suggestions from parents and carers. This section of our website shares feedback from questionnaires, surveys or general parent comments or queries received through our office email or feedback from newsletters. We welcome comments and suggestions from parents and are always open to new ideas.
Parent Drop-in Sessions
To support us with school improvement, we will be holding informal drop-in sessions with parents and carers every half term. During this time we will be reviewing an aspect of school and discuss what is working well and what we can do to improve. We welcome ideas and suggestions and it would be great to work with representatives from every year group across Nursery and School. If you would be interested in attending the meetings please let us know. Dates and times are on the half-termly newsletter and reminders will be emailed on our weekly newsletter.
Comments received from Early Years Parents Relating to the Lending Library February 2020
" My child has been enjoying borrowing books with audio CD or DVD inside. The first discovery was The Creepy Crawly Calypso book to which we found the video and lyrics on You Tube. Then it was a Teeny Weeny Tadpole book that had a CD with the book narrated and the sound for turning the page over. Very Useful! Recently my child borrowed Were going on the Bear Hunt with DVD that narrates and sings the whole story. My child loves singing along whilst following each page".
" The Nursery Library is amazing, Thank you!"
"We are enjoying all the Supertato books! My son now enjoys playing 'schools' and we frequently have to sit on the carpet and do good sitting and good listening, whilst we listen to our son aka Miss Gilinsky re-telling us a detailed version of Veggies Assemble."
" One of my daughter's favourites at the moment is A Kiss Like This by Mary Murphy - she loves doing impressions of all the animals kissing. She also likes any book involving Peppa Pig"
Comments received from Parents June 19 ....
"I think Westroyd is a friendly and supporting School where my child comes home full of enthusiasm and interest in all topics. My child has progressed both socially and academically".
" The small size of the School offers a warm and caring environment for my children. Westroyd offers fantastic provision in all areas of the curriculum. My children learn to a very high standard but freedom to play, explore and enjoy Nursery results in two very happy children who love to go to School".
" I would like to congratulate you and all the staff for the fabulous job you have done in transitioning and welcoming the children into reception this year. My daughter has settled very well and looks forward to going to school each day".
Thank you for your comments about the children settling in well- staff have been working really hard this summer getting things ready and setting up systems to support the settling in period and it definitely seems to be paying off. We appreciate the positive feedback.
