Parent and Pupil Voice
At Reedley, we strive to provide the best possible education for our children. We value your opinions, both pupils and adults, to celebrate our successes and improve our school. Thank you for completing the questionnaires that we sent home - they were returned by 113 families. Please click on the documents below to download your full views of the school.
Here are some of the headlines....

This is what you said about how we can improve and the actions we have taken so far:
- 93% of you said that your children had access to an extra-curricular club. We are currently reviewing the type and number of clubs that we offer in school so that we can accommodate more children. These include external clubs (as well as those provided by staff) which will provide a wider variety of activities for your children. Please keep checking the newsletters for more information.
- 91% of you said that children receive appropriate homework for their age. We use a variety of online platforms (e.g. Bug Club, TT Rockstars, Spag.com) and written tasks to provide age related activities that link with the children's learning. Some children will be completing more specfic online tasks to support next step learning. In addition, we have a 'Talking Topic' to encourage children to use topic related vocabulary in discussions, an English task and reading activities linked with the 'Reading for Pleasure' bookmarks. Homework is given out on Thursdays and collected on Tuesdays so that the children have time to ask for help if they are struggling. Please do speak to your child's class teacher if you wish to discuss their homework.
- 97% of our children said that they work hard to be the best that they can be. We are so proud of all of the hard work and effort that they put into their learning and enjoyment of school.
- 99% of our children said that they learn from their mistakes. This is so important to us as persevering to correct mistakes helps us all to be resilient and effective learners.
- 100% of our children said that all the staff in school work hard for them.
- 98% of our children said that they feel safe in school.
This is what your children said about how we can improve and the actions we have taken so far:
- 88% said children in school are friendly. We work with the childen to support them to develop and maintain friendships. When children fall out and mistakes are made, we look together at how we can learn from this to help us develop better relationships with our friends in the future. Our PSHE curriculum focuses on friendships, including bullying, and how we can build healthy friendships with our peers. We will be speaking to children in September to collect ideas on how we can make things even better.
