As always, we want to continue the improvement at Kensington. As a result of the feedback, we will be:

Bullying and exclusion by peers

  • Anti-bullying week
  • Sports leaders trained to support children and resolve disputes at play time and lunch time.
  • New equipment in the playground
  • Increased number of adults on duty at play time and lunch time.
  • External workshops to explain about bullying to children.
  • Parent training on key areas e.g. online safety.

Parents playing an active part

  • Further development of Friends of Kensington.
  • Curriculum training sessions for parents – Phonics, Maths etc.
  • Development of website and weekly newsletter to provide more timely, high quality information for parents.
  • Increased performances – Diwali, Guru Nanak, Christmas Carols, Nativity etc – for parents to attend.
  • Healthy Living Afternoon with parents to promote healthy living lifestyle.
  •  Development of homework to encourage greater collaboration and opportunities for discussion between parents and children.

We will continue to gather feedback throughout the year and feed this into our overall planning for the school to adapt and improve wherever we see opportunities.

If you would like to give your views you can do this on the ParentView website, which is administered by OFSTED.
