Have Your Say!

Dear Parents/ Guardians,


As a school we value your opinion on a whole variety of topics. This is a 'Have Your Say' page where Mrs Miller will ask you for your feedback to affect change in our school.


Please read all the information below, supplied by Mrs Miller, and then cast your vote in the polls below.


Thank you!

Thank you for giving your time to the issues below, we appreciate your contribution! 

POLL ONE - Red Polo Shirts for boys in the Summer Term

The girls in our school are allowed to wear summer dresses in the summer term. Some people feel that this is unfair to the boys as classrooms are very warm. So, would you as parents like boys to wear a red polo shirt, strictly for the summer term? The polo shirts would all have to be purchased from school to ensure that each boy had the same shade of red / logo etc. In September, all children would be expected to be in shirts and ties again. So, red polo shirts for boys in the summer term or not?

POLL TWO - Online Payment System
We want to become a cashless school so that teachers and office staff can concentrate on teaching, nurturing our pupils and school improvement. Over the last few months we have been investigating a few different systems for our school. It would not be possible to operate a dual system so we would ask for the majority of things in school to be paid online. We are visiting other schools in the local area to find out what is working best. Initial conversations with parents suggest that this would be a popular move. What do you think? Thank you for taking part in this poll. So, cashless school or not?
