School reopened on Wednesday 2nd September. Breakfast club is also open from 8-8.25, for children.
We have a 'Friends' group as well. Friends of Hannah More secures grant funding and charitable donations for the benefit of the school and its local community and works in partnership with community groups to run activities. Like the PTA, the Friends group aims to develop and support families, foster a sense of belonging and extend a welcome to everyone in the community. Their latest annual report can be read here. Due to a kind donation, Friends were also able to help 45 families with the cost of school uniform this summer.
We know that open communication and consultation with parents is really important. Governors are keen to involve parents and carers in school developments and involve them in wider discussions. One way this happens is through our ‘Parents’ Voice’ meetings. These meetings are advertised in the newsletter. They provide an opportunity for parents to discuss current issues and raise any concerns.
We carried out a Parents Survey in March 2019 and the results are here. We were pleased to discover that 87% of parents feel their children make good progress; this was up from 68% in September 2018.
