Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to leave feedback in their child’s Learning Record and judging by the responses received you all enjoyed having these home to discuss together. Please see below the collated feedback from the slips returned and what we plan to think about as a school to continue to develop how we share learning with you at home:
My child was happy to share their learning record with me– 99% of parents said AGREE OR STRONGLY AGREE
My child could talk about their learning (with prompting as necessary) – 98% of parents said AGREE OR STRONGLY AGREE
My child knows what they are good at and what they need to work on – 97% of parents said AGREE OR STRONGLY AGREE
I feel I have a better insight into my child’s learning and their progress – 98% of parents said AGREE OR STRONGLY AGREE
I feel it was useful to have the Learning Records home to share together – 100% of parents said AGREE OR STRONGLY AGREE
I feel it would be valuable to be able to repeat this exercise each term – 99% of parents said AGREE OR STRONGLY AGREE
From the comments/suggestions shared by parents, the following are our next steps as a school:
- Maths- how do we share learning and progress in this area? Not all maths work is done in a jotter, so how do we share the children’s thinking in a meaningful way? This is a hot topic and will be explored by teachers before the end of this session!
- Benchmarks for children: how do parents know what is level of work is expected of their child? The Learning Overviews went home earlier this term and these have targets for the core areas of the curriculum. We plan to revisit these targets and share how your child is progressing against these benchmarks.
- We plan to explore how to help children talk about their strengths and areas to work both academically and socially (as and when appropriate with our youngest learners).
- Due to the high level of interest and enthusiasm from parents/carers, the Learning Records will go home termly next session to allow more opportunities for you to interact with your child’s learning.
