Parents are our number 1 allies. Together we have a vested interest in the same things: the safety, happiness & achievement of their children. We simply could not do what we have to do without them.
We know that children are most likely to make great progress when they notice their parents and teachers working together – so try to involve parents in as much as we can.
Throughout the periods of Covid lockdown, staff at school were blown away by the outpouring of love, appreciation & support offered by parents. Have a look at some of what they had to say here:
What parents say about Stebon:
‘Shaping Stebon’s Future’?
We also know that parents always have fantastic ideas about how our school can improve. Harnessing these ideas is the task of ‘Shaping Stebon’s Future’
‘Shaping Stebon’s Future’ is the name we give to our annual parents’ conference – it does what it says on the tin! It’s a great opportunity for us to find out from parents what they think is going well at Stebon & to gather ideas for how children’s (and parents’) experience at our school might be improved. In participating, parents really are … shaping Stebon’s future!
The conference usually happens late in the autumn term. Parents’ suggestions are taken on & considered by staff at school before we make a plan. We then send feedback after Christmas about what we’re going to do differently & what parents might do to support our efforts.
The final piece of the jigsaw is our evaluation of how well our changes – based on parents’ suggestions – have worked. This document is called ‘Parent Power’. You can see the latest Parent Power here.
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about our school.
The survey can be completed at any time and we would really appreciate your feedback.
