Pretty as a picture

Recently we started a whole school project, ‘Take One Picture’.  The children looked at the painting ‘High Street, Oxford’ and used it as a stimulus to consider our own local area.  Each class looked closely at an area within our locality – you may have seen groups of children around the village sketching, and produced some artwork to represent and celebrate these areas.  Shown below are six of the pictures they have produced; do you recognise where they are?

With ever decreasing school budgets, we are always looking for ways to increase resources.  This year we introduced Birthday Book Donations; a bookplate is collected from the office on which is written the child’s name, their age and the class they are donating the book to.  The child gets to share the book with their class and say why they chose it. So far we have received nearly 100 books and we thank the parents for these donations.

Each year the governors give parents a questionnaire to fill in so they can tell us how they feel the school is run and it gives them the chance to feed back their thoughts and also any concerns.  We are very pleased with the following results:

Of those who responded,

100% would recommend the school to another parent, which we feel speaks volumes about the school

100% agreed the school is well lead and managed

98.9% felt their child is safe at school (there was one reply “don’t know”)

98.9% felt the school communicates with parents effectively about school events and activities

95.5% felt their child is taught well at school (none disagree, the remaining don’t know)

96.6% felt their child is making good progress (none disagree, the remaining don’t know)

95.5% felt there is a good standard of behaviour at Wychwood Primary School (only one disagreed)

Parents like the warm and happy ethos of the school and the strong sense of community across the school and there were many positive comments about the way children of different ages look out for each other.  Parents were pleased that we provide a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for the children.

We feel these results reflect the high level of teaching and pastoral care our children receive as well as reflecting the excellent behaviour and attitude of the children and the hard working and caring staff we have at our school.
