The school helps bring topics to life for my daughter and I think it really captures the imagination. The way the children are encouraged to read and do optional homework topics makes it fun and pleasurable for them. I think it makes them want to do more!
How the fun approach/delivery of learning is… everything is so interesting and fun!
Everything. Teachers are excellent.
Very friendly and supportive.
The standards of behaviour the teachers expect and implement are superb.
Their friendly and amazing staff.
Learning through play and that any problems are dealt with straight away.
The staff! Some fantastic teachers. The calm, positive approach to testing. My children have all been happy here.
All the extra’s such as Forest School, working in the garden and carousel learning
Feels like a big family. It feels like each child really matters and that each child’s individual needs are taken into account. Fantastic teaching resources and ideas!! Lovely Reception teachers J
The way learning is brought to life is fantastic, the effort the school goes to at making things fun is so good – the alien particularly captured imagination. My daughter loves school, her teachers and her friends
November 2017 Parent Survey
Thank you to all parents who took the time to feed back, we had the largest return so far with 149 parents completing the questionnaires. A comparison with previous questionnaire shows an increase in satisfaction. With 100% stating their child is taught well and they are happy with their child's experience at Cookridge. A fantastic achievement!
Our healthy school dinners comply with School Food Standard regulations, further information is on the website. Did you know our puddings contain reduced sugars and often have hidden acceptable vegetables in them?
Parents who completed the surveys after the consultations had a good understanding of national expectations for their children. Attending our parent and phase events is a good way to keep up to date.
Some parents were unaware of our policies and procedures, all the information you need is on our school website or alternatively is available via the school office.
Please take time to look at our communication, we keep you informed through newsletters, email, text messages and the school app. To ensure you receive emails and texts please sign up to ParentPay and keep the school office updated of any changes to contact information.
There are currently 9 high quality after school clubs currently running, led by professional coaches and specialist teachers. Staff have historically run several clubs however their key focus now is the teaching and learning of the children and as such are concentrating their time after school on this area.
