March 2021- Parental Survey

As part of our anonymous parents’ survey in March 2021, parents were asked the following ‘Is there anything you would like to tell us about your child’s education during the recent school closures (due to lockdown)?’

“The daily video from the teachers updating the day ahead was great. Communication was exceptional and always readily available if we needed help. Class Dojo as a platform of communication has been incredibly valuable. Fortunately, our child thrived through lockdown but class Dojo has been invaluable in keeping us updated allowing us to concentrate on home schooling.”

“We received fantastic support from everyone and would like to say a big thank you to all the staff for their hard work throughout”

“My child is making a lot of progress and his teacher was able to support me with that by sending out paperwork to complete. Thank you.”

“We received fantastic support from everyone and would like to say a big thank you to all the staff for their hard work throughout.”

“I thought it was brilliant got sent all the resources I needed and if I didn’t any help they got back as soon as possible.”

“Class Dojo was immensely appreciated to keep up communications and to keep class structure as close to normal as was possible.”
