Parents Questionnaire 2020
The school is fantastic, the kids are very happy and all the staff and teachers are doing an amazing job. Just one area for improvement would be to ensure children who are particularly able in a subject are given work that challenges them even if it is more advanced than the curriculum for their year group.
My first child has just started reception and of course because of corona things are different anyway. So on some where I have answered ‘agree’ I’m sure under different circumstances it would be ‘strongly agree’. Some of the questions I haven’t yet had much experience of if that makes sense but that doesn’t mean that it is not there and done brilliantly. I’m super impressed so far with Highfields. Thank-you.
Communication is not efficient too many channels (text messages, emails, tapestry…) it’s hard to follow everything and we received way too many communications, like several per day sometimes
Love Highfield my girls are thriving and are so happy. Great teaching and leadership. Have done a brilliant job dealing with COVID and trying to maintain normality for the children. Well done!
My children feel both happy and safe at Highfield and have been very fortunate to have had fantastic teachers over the time they have attended. We feel the teachers go the extra mile for our children. Thank you to Mr Wilson, his management team and every single one of the brilliant staff at Highfield!
We think you’ve done a brilliant job under hugely trying circumstances. Keeping our child learning and engaged whilst more importantly keeping him safe (and feeling safe there). Thank you
The interactive learning has been great and I’m glad all classes were not online as I think this would not have been manageable and place too much pressure on times children needed to be home throughout the day. The morning meets have provided a structure and an opportunity for children to see and interact with their peers. It helps that Ms Myers is an amazing teacher and really engages the children.
I’d like to congratulate the school on the choice of not given “live” online classes. As a parent who’s working from home and having to deal with home schooling this would’ve been impossible. The idea of having a daily call so they can see their teacher and friends was great too
Teachers tried their best but I feel my child was not focused at home at all. Live lessons would have definitely helped my child.
Great lessons, good mixture of videos and information provided, properly explained every morning what is expected and what needs to be done on a day
Lessons were well structured and with various activities. Teachers were always supportive and ready to answer to any of my questions. My experience during this time has been always very positive. Teachers have simply great!
Maybe use a different platform to google classroom. It is useful but I feel we could have better links.
Thank you for your continued commitment to the school.
