Your Views

We consider the views of our children, parents and community as pivotal to the running of our school.  There are several ways to give us feedback and we are always interested in any comments, questions or concerns you may have.  

Speak to your child’s teacher

Parents’ evenings are held three times a year – in term 1, term 3 and term 5. However, informal meetings can be more effective.  We encourage parents of all our pupils to keep in close contact with the school – it’s nearly always possible to speak with the class teacher for a moment or two before or after school, and a longer discussion can be arranged within a day or two. These meetings can be arranged if you have specific concerns or would like to know more about how to support your child.

Pastoral Support Manager

Kayleigh Simpson is in school every Monday, Thursday and Friday. Her role is to work closely with children and parents to ensure all our children are happy and learning well. Kayleigh is happy to talk through any questions or concerns you may have from packed lunch ideas, making home learning fun, bedtime routines to discussing difficult issues with your child, friendship issues or celebrating successes.

Speak to the headteacher

As well as speaking to the class teacher, Mr Rawling is always happy to hear your comments and discuss ways to support you and your child. He treats all feedback sensitively and appropriately – your feedback is one of the ways we can keep getting better and better. If you are unable to meet face-to-face then you can always email or telephone the school – 01233 666307.

Put your views in writing

Every year in the Summer Term, we send out a short survey for parents to complete. The survey is enables us to get an overall picture of parents views and to include their wishes in our School Plan. The questions also relate to Ofsted inspection criteria and will be about teaching, learning, behaviour and safety, and leadership. There’s always space for you to express your views, too. The surveys can be returned anonymously, if you’d prefer.

Don’t wait until the annual survey, though! If you’ve got some feedback for us, we’d like to hear from you. You could send us an email or a short note. 

Contact Ofsted

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about Repton Manor Primary School Primary. It asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. Ofsted uses the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping us to improve – we’ll aim to keep doing the things you praise and address any areas of concern. Please remember that if your feedback is specific to your own child, it might be better to contact someone at school so we can respond quickly and specifically to help your child.

Make a complaint

Complaints are rare at Repton Manor Primary School. We have an open culture. Staff are nearly always available – it’s easy to have a quick chat with teachers or the headteacher so most concerns or complaints are dealt with quickly. However, if parents feel that they need to make a formal complaint, it should be made in writing to the Headteacher. Our complaints procedure can be found in the policies section of the website.
